A new exhibition at the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History that explores the Vietnam War opens tonight with a reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Decorated pilot Hugh L. Mills will be the guest of honor, and will give a talk Friday morning at 11 a.m.

The exhibit, "Vietnam: America's Conflict," also honors the 600 Arkansans who died in the war.

Mills, author of "Low Level Hell," served two tours in Vietnam as an aero scout and cobra pilot. A flyer from the museum says he was shot down 16 times and wounded three times. He earned three Silver Stars, the Legion of
Merit, four Distinguished Flying Crosses and three Bronze Stars. Joining him at the reception tonight will be House Speaker Robert Moore and Attorney General Dustin McDaniel.
