A bit of history that includes Marilyn Monroe, DiMaggio and the Pentagon
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 was issued a Pentagon ID card for the trip to Korea, and the ID lists her married name: DiMaggio. Check it out:
Marilyn Monroe was only her stage name. She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson.
Monroe and DiMaggio were married only very briefly; they wed in January 1954 and divorced in 1955.
