Case Description: Zeus awards Iris with a Medal of Distinction for her service during the Trojan War. As recorded in Homer's Iliad, Iris served as a brave messenger of the gods on many occasions throughout the war. She also went beyond the call of duty by pulling Aphrodite from the battlefield after the love goddess was wounded by Diomedes.
