At least one Marine in Afghanistan won’t have to worry about dropping morale.

Actress Mila Kunis has agreed to a date with a sergeant after he made a simple request online.

Kunis learned of the invitation when FOX411 brought it up. Her “Friends With Benefits” costar, Justin Timberlake, encouraged her to agree, saying, “You need to do it for your country.”

After Moore’s success, prepare to see a deluge of hopeful men asking out Hollywood starlets on YouTube.
