She still has eleven months to change her mind, but last week First Lady Michelle Obama replied with a tentative “yes” to Marine Lance Corporal Aaron Leeks’ request that she acompany him to the Marine Corps Ball next November.
The native Marylander says he asked Michelle Obama, the wife of his commander-in-chief, to be his date as a way of saying “thank you” for her personal support of military families.
