(CBS) Mila Kunis will be serving her country in November - by attending the Marine Corps. Ball in Greenville, N.C.

Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, posted a video on YouTube last month asking the actress to be his date to the event on Nov. 18. (Watch the video below.)

"Hi Mila, I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps. Ball with yours truly," Moore said in the video. "So take a second to think about it and get back to me. All right, bye now."

During a weekend interview with Kunis and her "Friends with Benefits" co-star Justin Timberlake, FOX411 asked the actress about the invitation, prompting Timberlake to urge her to accept.

After checking with her publicist, the 27-year-old agreed to attend.

"I'll go, I'll do it for you," she said, turning to Timberlake to ask, "Are you going to come?"

"They don't want me! They want you," he responded, according to Fox. "You need to do it for your country."

"I'll do it," she confirmed.
