Beyond the Medal (Front Cover)

Mr. Lemon is the author of the inspirational book Beyond the Medal, which has been praised by many, including the oldest literary club in the United States.  The book was written in response to his children’s question about the recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Mr. Lemon donated his book to the 32,000 secondary schools in America.

In Beyond the Medal, the recipients tell in their own words about the people and incidents that have shaped their lives.  Although they have gone where we may not, you will discover these exemplary individuals are similar to you and me.  They are farmers, businessmen, politicians and sons from all walks of life.  This book will make you feel proud to be one of them – an American.

“Great collection of stories.  These stories of heroism and valor under fire show us the best of the human spirit.  I couldn’t put it down.”

Jack Canfield

Author of "Chicken Soup for the Soul"

“Our country’s Congressional Medal of Honor recipients hold a special place in the hearts of all Americans.”

Colin Powell

Secretary of State (2001 to 2005)

“We are all free because of their heroics – pause to reflect on the enormity of their contributions to all of us – Beyond the Medal is powerful reading.”

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer (1940 – 2015)
