Hey, remember that time Justin Timberlake promised to attend the Marine Corps Ball after being asked by one Corporal Kelsey DeSantis? Well, that happened this weekend! Some pictures were taken and he wrote about his experience:

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.” 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.

And it only gets more grateful and honest from there. You should absolutely read the whole thing. (via BuzzFeed)
