Justin Timberlake Talks Marine Corps Ball

He received an invitation to the Instructor Battalion Marine Corps Ball this past weekend, and Justin Timberlake had the time of his life.

The “Cry Me A River” singer was invited via YouTube by combat instructor Kelsey De Santis and he was quite glad he decided to accept.

Justin wrote on his website, “What I didn’t know was how moved I would be by the whole experience.”

Of Kelly, Timberlake shared, “She seemed to me to be so humble and honest... Very cool. She also simultaneously seemed like she was nervous about the whole evening and if I was going to enjoy myself. 'Are you ok?' she asked 2 or 3 times. ‘I hope you are having fun. I know you will once my crew of friends get here to the table.' "

Justin continued, “I have to tell you, it's not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she's more worried about if I'm having fun or if I'm comfortable! It hit me all of a sudden that these were the type of people that look after us and our freedom... Humble, concerned for others before themselves... This was the type of person our Marine Corps was building. I was really blown away."

“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 younger than me."
