He apologizes for his late notice.....he's blaring Katy Perry music in the background....your move Katy.

 

So, why Katy Perry?  For the record, it's not because he wants to be the latest 'ask a celebrity out on a date' guy.  Katy's music was an inspiration to him, and it got him through some tough times.

 

His name is Ken Yasger, and he's the first openly gay ranger in his unit.  Every single day, he would wake up to 'Wide Awake' on his alarm clock.  He would continuously listen to Katy's music through-out the day.

 

The Ranger ball invitation is definitely short notice, the ball is scheduled for October 10.
