Legalman 1st Class Charlene Zirkelbach, assigned to the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1), explains what each of her ribbons means to a Girl Scout from the Greater New York Girl Scouts of New York City during a tour of the ship for Fleet Week New York 2012. The visit allowed the Girl Scouts to speak to female service members and learn about everyday life in the military as a woman. This marks the 25th year the city has celebrated the nation’s sea services for the citizens of New York and the tri-state area. This year the seven-day event coincides with the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, with more than 6,000 service members from the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard team in addition to coalition ships from around the world.
