Lance Corporal Tanner Ivie who lost his foot in Afghanistan and received the Purple Heart, has invited country superstar Taylor Swift to the upcoming Marine Ball.Lance Corporal Tanner Ivie said, " I just figured since I got my new leg, you would be the first person I would want to dance with". No word yet on whether Taylor Swift will be able to accept the offer since she is currently on tour. But she has a little time to decide since the Marine Ball is not until November.

Meanwhile Lance Corporal Tanner Ivie continues to recover in a military hospital in San Antonio but has been in contact with his mom in Carrollton, Texas through Skype.

Lance Corporal says he hopes country music stations will get behind him to support his request for a date with Taylor.

I say...Taylor give the guy a dream of a lifetime, go with him to the Marine Ball if your schedule permits. And Thanks Lance Corporal Tanner Ivie for your service and dedication to our country.
