Here a picture of Justin Timberlake at the Marine Corps Ball. The singer-actor accepted the request of Cpl. Kelsey De Santis for an escort to the Marine gala at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia.
Timberlake said of Santis, “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… 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.”
“Thank you Corporal Kelsey De Santis,” concluded the superstar. “Thank you for inviting me. And, thank you for being my hero.”
