Justin Timberlake accepted an invitation to attend the Marine Corps Ball while promoting his film “Friends with Benefits“. The multi-talented singer/actor was invited by Corporal Kelsey De Santis via youtube by in the military who wanted JT to be her date. Isn’t JT the best?  Kelsey spoke about her experience during the evening.

“It was wonderful. It was a really good experience,” De Santis told Ann Curry this morning while appearing on Today, adding that when she first saw Timberlake arrive in a tuxedo “he had a big smile on his face and so did I.”
While fondly recalling the evening, De Santis said she couldn’t help but notice how her famous date was really moved by the event.
“The sweetest moment was definitely right after the ceremony ended and being able to see his face,” she said. “You could see he genuinely cared about what he saw.” [via]

Justin shared a blog post about how he was moved by the experience on his official website.

I had the honor and privilege last night of attending The Basic School Instructor Battalion 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball at the Greater Richmond Convention Center with Corporal Kelsey DeSantis…

I knew I would have an evening that I wouldn’t forget… Something I could tell my friends about. What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience.

I’ve always been very vocal about my support of our Armed Forces. I’ve always felt like they offered us the opportunity to live our lives freely without the fear that so many other nations have to endure still to this day. And, they do it without asking for anything in return. I had this very feeling walking into this dinner. So, to say I was stoked to be there would be more than accurate.

As the evening got started, I met Kelsey and we made our way to the ballroom where the Marine Ball was going to be held. I stopped in an area designated as a kind of VIP for some of the officers, I think. I took some photos and shook hands with some of the men and women who take such great care of our freedom. It was nice to be there already.[via]
