The year after the Korean War ended, Marilyn Monroe stopped by to entertain the U.S. troops still stationed there. It was only a minor detour for the film star—Marilyn was on honeymoon in Japan with baseball player Joe DiMaggio after their wedding.

She toured more than ten bases, and gave a show in every one. In total, she performed to more than 100,000 military men.

Just eight months after the wedding, she and DiMagggio would be divorced.
