Philippine Insurrection Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient.

Hugh served in the United States Navy as a Seaman on board the "USS Texas". He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery on November 11, 1899. His citation reads "On board the USS Texas during the coaling of that vessel at Hampton Roads, Va., 11 November 1899. Jumping overboard while wearing a pair of heavy rubber boots and at great risk to himself, Mullin rescued Alfred Kosminski, apprentice, second class, who fell overboard, by supporting him until he was safely hauled from the water". His Medal was issued on January 8, 1900. Even though his brave act took place thousands of miles from the Philippine Islands, it occured while the Insurrection against United States forces was taking place, and is thusly listed officially as a Medal of Honor for that time period.
