The Medal of Honor
The Medal of Honor Background
The Medal of Honor is the nation's highest medal for valor in combat that can be awarded to members of the military.
The medal was first authorized in 1861 for Sailors and Marines, and the following year for Soldiers as well. Since then, more than 3,400 Medals of Honor have been awarded to members of all DoD services and the Coast Guard.
Medal of Honor Recipients
over 3400 men and women have recived the medal of honor including Tibor Rubin Woody Williams and Theodore Roosevelt
Tibor "Ted" Rubin is a Hungarian-born Holocaust survivor who emigrated to the United States in 1948. He received the Medal of Honor for his courageous actions during the Korean War as a U.S. Infantry soldier and POW. President George W. Bush presented this award to him on September 23, 2005. Tibor Rubin was repeatedly nominated for various military actions, but was overlooked because of antisemitism by a superior. Fellow soldiers said Rubin's sergeant was an anti-Semite who gave Rubin dangerous assignments in the hope of getting him killed.
