After the singer-turned-actor attended the 236th Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Virg. Sunday, he took to his blog to describe the event as “one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had.”
It was especially magical for his date. Last summer, Corporal Kelsey de Santis posted a sassy video on YouTube asking Timberlake to attend the ball on her arm. She had been inspired by his “Friends with Benefits” co-star Mila Kunis accepting another Marine’s invite to a similar Nov. 18 event. . . .
“Thank you Corporal Kelsey DeSantis,” Timberlake wrote on his blog. “Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
Timberlake then spread his love around to all the 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,” blogged Timberlake. “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.”
