Sgt. Scott Moore, currently deployed with 3rd battalion, 2nd Marines (“The Betio Bastards”) in Afghanistan, became a minor YouTube sensation when he recorded a video of himself asking starlet Mila Kunis to escort him to the Marine Corps ball in Greenville, NC in November.

Kunis, informed of the offer by a Fox entertainment reporter, has said yes. I suspect a USO “Dance With a Soldier” initiative would be fairly well received by our warfighters.

On an unrelated note, I feel I should inform Blake Lively that I am still stag for the next NR Christmas party.
