Tibor Rubin(R.I.P.) and the Medal of Honor

"In 2002, after Congress passed the Leonard Kravitz Jewish War Veterans Act — named for a Jewish soldier killed in an act of heroism in 1951 and subsequently denied the Medal of Honor — President Bush ordered a review of the records of 137 Jewish veterans. Corporal Rubin’s case was deemed among the most egregious.
But he wasn’t bitter, as he explained in the Stars and Stripes 2005 article:
“I’m not angry with the Chinese, I’m not angry with the North Koreans, I’m not even angry with the Germans,” he said. “I figure the Lord is going to take care of them. So how could I be angry at this country, which did so much for me?”"

Tibor Rubin has died – If you don’t know who he was, you need to
