Peter C. Lemon is a surviving recipient of America's highest award: The Congressional Medal of Honor. It was presented by the President of the United States in 1971. Vastly outnumbered in a fierce enemy attack in Vietnam, Mr. Lemon assisted in saving the lives of his team. From the official citation, although wounded numerous times, he refused to be evacuated until the enemy had retreated and his injured comrades were airlifted to safety.
Mr. Lemon dedicates his award and pays tribute to all those who served in his unit, most importantly the three comrades they lost in the battle for which he received the award: Casey Waller, Nathan Mann and Brent Street. Mr. Lemon believes, "..if it wasn't for my E Company RECON team and all those on FSB Illingworth I certainly wouldn't be alive today. For this I'm eternally grateful."
