In 1954, a Pentagon ID used by Marilyn Monroe while visiting troops in Korea listed her by her marriage surname, DiMaggio.
Sixty-two years ago this month, actress Marilyn Monroe and her husband visited troops in Korea on a goodwill mission. Her husband, of course, was Yankees outfielder and Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio.

Monroe and DiMaggio were married only very briefly; they wed in January 1954 and divorced in 1955.
