MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History
Executive Director: Stephan McAteer
Little Rock, AR

The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, a program of Little Rock Parks and Recreation, was created to preserve and interpret the state's military heritage from its territorial period to the present day. The museum preserves the contributions of Arkansas men and women who have served in peacetime and in war.

Arkansas Medal of Honor Recipients Exhibit
A ceremony will be held at the museum at 11:00 am July 26 to unveil plans for a comprehensive permanent exhibit dedicated to Arkansas’ recipients that will open in 2007. As the cornerstones of the new exhibit, three medals of honor: Nathan G. Gordon from WWII, one from Korea and one from Vietnam displayed together.

“We are humbled to have these important medals here,” said Stephan McAteer, executive director of the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History. “The actions of selfless sacrifice these medals represent, along with those of the other Arkansans who’ve been recognized for similar acts of valor should and will be retold here.”  McAteer added, “We are hopeful the public can help us obtain additional information, photos or personal memorabilia related to the military service of other Arkansas recipients of the Medal of Honor as we more fully develop this exhibit.”
