An Ambassador of courage, determination and triumph, he profoundly enriches the
lives of others.
Mr. Lemon is one of the youngest surviving recipients of America's highest award:

injured comrades were airlifted to safety.

a sculptor, an acclaimed author and the executive producer of the Emmy winning
documentary Beyond the Medal. An industry leader for thirty years, his companies
provided business insurance to over three thousand restaurants nationwide and
professional liability insurance for the 70,000 nurses of the National Organization of
Health Care Professionals and as a commercial general contractor built convenience
stores for Amoco, Exxon, Phillips, Conoco and Diamond Shamrock.
Recently, the President of the United States presented Mr. Lemon the prestigious
'Outstanding American by Choice' award in a 2009 White House ceremony
recognizing his life of professional achievement and civic contribution, stating... "it's my privilege to present the 'Outstanding
American by Choice Award' to Peter Lemon...who has devoted his time and energies to talking about what his own experiences
have meant to him and what he has learned, to encourage each and every one of us that the way to make the most of our
talents is to make a difference in the lives of others."
Mr. Lemon is an inductee in the elite special operations 75th Rangers 'Ranger Hall of Fame', holds a Bachelors Degree in Speech
and a Masters of Science degree in Business Administration.
Author of Beyond the Medal, A Journey from Their Hearts to Yours and executive producer of the documentary Beyond the Medal of
Honor, Mr. Lemon donated his book to the 32,000 secondary schools in the United States. In partnership with his friend Ross Perot,
the documentary, with curriculum, was given to over 17,000 public and private high schools to inspire our youth to become worthy
citizens. Mr. Lemon continues to volunteer his time with our children, advocating positive decisions that build character and
motivating them to live their dreams.
