Justin Timberlake showed that he had honor last weekend when he attended the Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Richmond, VA on the arm of Corporal Kelsey DeSantis.
Timberlake may have been caught up in the publicity of his Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis being invited by her own Marine back in July. Shortly after that, Justin accepted an video-invitation by DeSantis.
After attending the ball on Saturday night, Timberlake took to his blog to share his experience. He wrote, “I felt so proud to be there. I felt like I was getting a chance to be among my heroes. It’s funny too, because a lot of them are SO much younger than me.” That single post has nearly 19,000 Likes on Facebook.
It’s nice to know that although Timberlake is not on the front line, he is a man of his word and seemed truly moved by the event. He closed his post with, “Thank you Corporal Kelsey DeSantis. Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
Here is Corporal DeSantis original video asking J.T. to the ball.
