Another aspect of conservatism is patriotism. Not any elaborately theorized nationalism, but a simple, instinctual desire to serve one's country in times of danger. Right after Pearl Harbor, Julia Child tried to sign up for the WAVES, but was rejected because of her unusual height. She ended up with the OSS (the predecessor of the CIA).
This also suggests that that real patriotism doesn't require xenophobia and its more specific manifestation, Francophobia. Julia Child loved America and loved France, and believed that the former could learn from the latter. That is, true love of country doesn't require that one believe one's homeland to be without flaws or incapable of progress. Then again, those were also days in which the French thought there was something to be learned from America, when they sought to tap into some of our optimism and energy (just as Julia Child tried to get America to learn from France's insistence on civilization and tradition).
