East Texan Collin Gray has been in Afghanistan fighting for our country since November of 2012. The 20-year-old infantryman was a graduate of Chapel Hill High School in 2011 and knew without a doubt what he wanted to do with his life. And apparently he also knew without a doubt who he wanted as his date for this year's Army Ball. Not only is she a native Texan, but she is also one of the biggest names in popular music.

That's none other than Selena Gomez of course. The 20-year-old Grand Prairie native is known for her work on the Disney hit Wizards of Waverly Place, movies such as Ramona and Beezus and Spring Breakers, and has chart-topping hits including Love You Like A Love Song. Not only that, but she is constantly in the headlines for her on-again-off-again relationship with super star Justin Bieber.

No word if Gomez has responded or even seen the video yet. It was put online just four days ago. The ball is in mid-September, so she has plenty of time to accept the invitation. And we're sure that Justin Bieber would even be OK with it. These soldiers do so much for our country and our freedom, the least she can do is say YES!

In the video Collin also talks about his return home in August. He says all he wants to do is see his family. I don't think the video was made just to invite Gomez to the ball, but nonetheless, it happened!

Collin: a HUGE thank you from everyone here at the station for what you are doing for us and the sacrifices you're making. Can't wait to have you home in August!
