Who can blame Corporal Kelsey De Santis for wanting to share more details—and pictures!—from the Marine Corps Birthday Ball?
"I am so thankful to Justin Timberlake for accompanying me to the Ball and for his incredible post describing the events of the night.," De Santis writes. "The experience he had is more than I could have ever hoped for, and I am truly humbled by the appreciation and respect that he has shown for the Marine Corps."
De Santis recalls that "any uneasiness" she may have felt prior to meeting Timberlake "immediately went away as I realized what humble, good people Justin and those surrounding him are."
The 23-year-old goes on to say that, not only did she get the chance to sit and talk at length with the "SexyBack" singer about her Marine Corps experience, but that when others began to arrive at the reception, Timberlake was more than gracious when it came to shaking hands and taking pictures.
"There was never a dull moment!" insists De Santis. "And I have to say Justin fit right in. As the night came to a close, we all walked out with Justin and said our goodbyes... but he didn't get to leave the Ball without first receiving a bayonet engraved with 'Justin "come tussle" Timberlake.' Who knows, maybe J.T. will be enlisting next?!"
