The Mitchell Post formed in 1919 and was once headquartered in what is now the Anne M. Scully Senior Center, when it was known as the Veterans Building.
Mitchell, the son of John and Esther Mitchell of Hull Village, was the first Hull soldier who lost his life in the service of his country during World War I, and a plaque commemorating him still hangs on the wall in the building at 197A Samoset Ave.
Mitchell was a member of the 61st Infantry Machine Gun Company, 5th Division.
Mitchell had volunteered to go on outpost duty while in the front lines at Mayenmontier. Shortly afterwards a German sniper located the postion. When morning dawned the American soldier was found shot through the heart.
The attendance was the largest at a funeral in this town in many years.
Town officials and the entire community of Hull Village. Together with many Summer residents were in attendance at the honors to Hull's Hero!
