The marines of the HQ Battery of North Carolina celebrate their 10th birthday ball and special invitation has been extended to Kim Kardashian to attend. The organizer of the ball, who allegedly happens to be a member of the Marine Corps, extended the invitation a few months prior to the event. This event is very well known and special invitations are generally sent out to celebrities who take time out to honor these brave servicemen with their presence. Such is the case of celebs like Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, among others.
Kim Kardashian gladly accepted the invitation and since then has been making arrangements to attend the event. Her arrangements included rescheduling some of the shootings for her famous “E!” reality TV program, as well as exhaustive workouts. Prior to attending the ball, Kim tweets that she was exhausted following a session of workouts, which she considered to be one of the best she has ever had.
Kim appears to be attending the Marine Ball without her boyfriend Kanye West, since no information have been released about an invitation extended to him nor has anyone broken the news about the same. Updates of the progress leading up to the event are expected as usual, since Kim always keeps her fan base posted. Many shares the anticipation that the marine, who would be spending the time with her, would be extremely happy and fans could hardly wait to see the pictures and read the updates that are sure to follow.
As with most cases of the Marine Corps, the identity of the serviceman, who invited Kim Kardashian to the ball, has not been released as yet. This adds even a bit more to all the suspicion and anxiety – everyone is eager to find out who the lucky guy would be!
