As if we weren't already in love with Justin Timberlake! Ugh, this man gives us every reason to continue to love him! The 30-year-old star attended the 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball this past Saturday night in Richmond, VA with Corporal Kelsey DeSantis (the woman who invited JT via YouTube in July).
The handsome Mr. Timberlake blogged about his experience. He wrote a candid letter about the night and how touched he was by the Marine Corps. He referenced a Pearl Harbor and 9/11 tribute that demonstrated how those who serve our country don't ask questions and are there on the front lines ready to fight for our country. Justin wrote , "They were there FIRST. There on the front lines. No questions... Just reaction." He also writes that he enjoyed the ceremony and loved meeting his date's friends. All of Corporal Kelsey's friends were genuine and kind. (Well c'mon you are Justin Timberlake-Don't think anyone was going to be mean to you, buddy!)
And what was so great about the letter was the ending. Timberlake penned, "To all of you that serve every day for us... Ensuring our freedom, I say: My deepest gratitude to you. I've met so many of my heroes... From Michael Jordan to Michael Jackson. And, nothing makes me feel more honor and pride than when I get to meet one of you. Last night changed my life and I will never forget it."
Great to hear that it was such a moving night for him!! I'm sure it was a moving night for the ladies in the building as well! Ha.
