MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT
Tibor "Ted" Rubin (born June 18, 1929) is a Hungarian-born Holocaust survivor who emigrated to the United States in 1948 and received the Medal of Honor for his valorous actions during the Korean War as a U.S. Infantry soldier and POW from President George W. Bush on September 23, 2005.[1] Rubin is a resident of Garden Grove, California.
Rubin was repeatedly nominated for various military decorations, but was overlooked because of antisemitism by a superior: according to the Washington Post, "in affidavits filed in support of Rubin's nomination for the Medal of Honor, fellow soldiers said Rubin's sergeant was an anti-Semite who gave Rubin dangerous assignments in the hope of getting him killed".
