Peter C. Lemon Speaker Biography


Mr. Peter C. Lemon is among the most dynamic public speakers of our time. 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, the Congressional Medal of Honor, for assisting in saving the lives of his team in Vietnam. Entertaining audiences as a professional speaker for over fourteen years, a successful insurance and construction entrepreneur for almost three decades, an acclaimed author and executive producer of the Emmy winning documentary Beyond the Medal of Honor, he speaks from real life experiences.

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, presented Mr. Lemon the coveted ‘Outstanding American by Choice’ award in a 2009 White House ceremony recognizing his life of professional achievement and civic contribution.

Mr. Lemon is an inductee in the elite ‘Ranger Hall of Fame’, holds a Bachelors Degree in Speech, a Masters of Science degree in Business Administration and was proclaimed ‘Humanitarian Alumni of the Year’ at his graduate alma mater. His book and documentary have been donated to every high school in the nation to inspire our children. Mr. Lemon continues to volunteer his time with our youth, advocating positive decisions and motivating them to live their dreams.

Mr. Lemon’s passion for life is contagious. In his spirited, charismatic ‘storyteller’ style, Mr. Lemon challenges and encourages us to make a difference, impacting the way we think, live and work.

Whether the mission of your next event is to energize your membership, honor your employees, praise your graduates, ignite your sale force or elevate your professional relationships, and you desire a dignitary that will transform the occasion into a celebration never to be forgotten, then Peter C. Lemon is your choice. He brings out the best in all of us!

An Evening with Peter C. Lemon

An audience favorite. With your event theme in mind, Mr. Lemon shares stories, personal vignettes and humorous anecdotes from his childhood, the military, college, business and the White House. Although he has soared where possibly we have not flown in life, you will discover you and he are very much alike.

‘Persistence’ – It’s The Key!

You would presume being the recipient of the Medal of Honor, Mr. Lemon had met his biggest confrontation in life: not so. From his own experiences he will cheer you on to meet your greatest challenges. He believes that life is here to test us and that persistence is essential to overcoming obstacles and living our dreams.

“And Now…The Rest of the Story” – Finally, After Forty Years, Mr. Lemon Reveals the Truth.

Intrigue. Deception. Against all odds. It’s a tale from which movies are made. Mr. Lemon takes you on a journey privy to only two people in the world. What really happened at the battles of fire support base Jay and Illingworth in Vietnam? The cost was extreme. Decisions hard to comprehend. This riveting story will take your breath away. There are lessons to be learned. How we make decisions in life is paramount. They shape our character, who we are and who we will become.

‘Beyond the Medal of Honor’ – Creating the Emmy Winning Documentary.

It was five years in the making and a labor of love for executive producer Mr. Lemon. During the filming: two principle characters died, thousands of miles traveled, dozens of interviews, endless months of editing, all driven by respect for his fellow medal recipients. It’s a tribute to ‘The Fighter’, ‘The Lieutenant’, ‘The Captain’ and ‘The Green Beret’ from the heartland of America. Four nominations and two Emmy’s later; the documentary was donated to every high school in America, with curriculum, to inspire our youth. Tom Brokaw, who provides the introduction, said “Their tales of courage, sacrifice and selflessness are so incredible they cannot help but inspire us as Americans.”

‘The Hero Within!’

Mr. Lemon explores with you the characteristics of heroism and encourages us to answer our deepest and most intimate questions with regard to our own personal courage. He believes that “True Heroism is not A Matter of Chance, It’s a Matter of Choice” and that we have a responsibility to ‘take action’ and be heroic in our personal and professional lives. You will leave standing taller with pride, honor and dignity.
