Tibor "Ted" Rubin (June 18, 1929 – December 5, 2015) was a Hungarian-born United States Army soldier.
A Holocaust survivor who emigrated to the United States in 1948, he fought in the Korean War and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the war, as a combatant and a prisoner of war (POW).
Rubin received the award from President George W.
Bush on September 23, 2005, 55 years after the Korean war.
Rubin was repeatedly nominated for various military decorations, but was overlooked because of antisemitism by a superior.
Fellow soldiers who filed affidavits supporting Rubin's nomination for the Medal of Honor said that Rubin's sergeant "was an anti-Semite who gave Rubin dangerous assignments in hopes of getting him killed".
In November, 2016, President Obama signed legislation renaming the Long Beach California VA Medical Center after Rubin.
