The "Shalom Tibor Rubin" mural, in the lobby of the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center Longbeach California,
with Tibor's daughter Rosie and artist. The mural portrays the life of this remarkable Medal of Honor recipient from the age of 13 to 86.
On May 10th 2017, the VA Medical Center in Long Beach California was renamed, the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center. In 2016 I read the story, "Single Handed" by Daniel Cohen and was so moved that I had to thank Corporal Rubin visually. As a draftee on a green card in 1965 I felt a commitment to a pledge I had made in the American Embassy in London. I felt a kinship with Tibor and his commitment to America, and did these paintings so he will never be forgotten. I wish I had had the honor to have met the man, but have been told by friends and family, I captured Tibor.
