Marilyn Monroe In Korea, 1954

In 1954, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were on their honeymoon in Tokyo, Japan, when Marilyn received an invitation from General John E. Hull’s Far East command to entertain the U.S. troops stationed in war torn Korea. Joe objected to her going to Korea at that time because he feared for her safety. She was going to do some of her shows very close to the front lines, which was still a very dangerous place at that time, but she said it was ”the least she could do.”
