A Sergeant at the marine corps ball at the Greenville Convention Center Friday night had a dream date, Hollywood actress Mila Kunis, but the starlet could not outshine the warriors honored at this ball.
From stars and stripes to blues and satin- the Third battalion, 2nd Marines Division Birthday Ball rolled on.
A dapper devil dog made his YouTube offer to a movie star months ago.
"I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the marine corps ball," said Sgt. Scott Moore on the internet video.
To the surprise of many, Mila Kunis accepted.
As much as her appearance means a lot to this marine unit, they have other people to thank for showing up when they needed it most. They lost a marine or sailor for every month of their recent deployment to Afghanistan - seven marines killed in the line of duty. That's why Captain Scott Sasser says despite the added bit of glitz and glamor their focus is elsewhere.
"You see the medals on everyone's chest - the accomplishments they made." said Sasser.
Those inside the ball say Kunis and Sgt. Moore appeared together by 7:00 p.m. when the ball began.
Actress Mila Kunis is attending the Marine Corps ball in Greenville tonight with Sergeant Scott Moore.
She accepted his YouTube invite earlier this year, while he was on his second combat deployment with the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines.
Despite all the buzz about Kunis, the Marines are moving forward with their annual event with little deviation.
The media is not allowed to attend the ball, but hopefully we'll be able to bring you a Mila sighting or two! The ball starts at 7 tonight.
