Chivalry -- And Make It Snappy!

Post-war American panache, goofy and confident despite the mushroom clouds and then-recent megadeath.  A loosening of the US military blouse, symbolic triumph over a dwarfed, defeated enemy, a belittling of a Europe at that point flattened, the parent proven not to know the lessons it was meant to teach.

The child not yet learning all the lessons, but bluff in its underdeveloped certainty.
