AWARD OF THE SILVER STAR (POSTHUMOUS). ---By direction of the President, under the provisions of the Act of Congress, approved 9 July 1918 (WD Bul 43, 1918), and pursuant to authority in AR 600-45, the Silver Star for gallantry in action is awarded posthumously to the following-named enlisted man:
Corporal PAUL S. MULLINS, RA13428658, Infantry, Medical Company, 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the morning and early afternoon of 17 July 1953, in the vicinity of Kumhwa, Korea, Company "B" raided enemy-held Hill "433" and sustained several casualties. Corporal MULLINS, an aidman attached to the unit, immediately rushed into the terrain under heavy enemy fire and commenced to administer aid to the wounded raiders. With complete disregard for his personal safety, he moved through the bombardment from one exposed position to another. Corporal MULLINS then courageously made several trips across the shell-torn slope to place the casualties in a sheltered location. He then rushed back into the impact area in search of additional wounded and in this brave attempt, was mortally sounded by the enemy fire. Corporal MULLINS' outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Virginia.
