I took the Viet Nam War trivia quiz. . . and got “War Historian”

I'm sure I didn't get them all--wish they would show what was missed. I won't identify what high school student I was talking to in the 1980s, but of course, Viet Nam was ancient history then. The student didn't know which came first, WWII or Vietnam. It had become popular by then to think teaching facts was just boring and unnecessary. When I watch Watters' World (Fox) I'm not surprised when college students think Lincoln was a founding father, or don't know the name of the current vice president. They can name all the Kardashians, though.
