While passing out gifts for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots, Lance Cpl. Aaron Leeks, 20, soldiered up and asked the First Lady of the United States to accompany to the Marine Corps Ball. Meeks said that, besides being gorgeous, he admires the work that Mrs. Obama does with the military. He spotted Michelle leaning over a toy bin sorting through hundreds of toys and quickly made his move.
When asked about the FLOTUS’s response, Meeks revealed:
"She said she'd love to go,” said Meeks. “Actually, she said I'd need to speak to her husband, too, but she said she'd love to."
Meeks, who will deployed to Afghanistan in January, plans to return next year to attend the Ball.
When asked by reporters at the White House had President Barack Obama given his wife permission to attend the Marine Corps Ball, Press Secretary Jay Carney said that he wasn’t even sure if the president was aware of the invitation.
Let Michelle go have some fun Barack!
