Marilyn Monroe visited Turkish soldiers fighting in the Korean War, recently revealed photos show.

The legendary beauty icon is seen amongst the soldiers in a set of photos taken in the early 1950s during the Korean War, for which Turkey had sent troops.

Monroe is pictured amongst the army men, wearing a Turkish uniform and a dark pair of sunglasses.

The photos were revealed by a Turkish businessman, Muhammet Yüksel, who claims that the photos had never been published before.



Yüksel further said that the photos were taken during Monroe’s honeymoon trip to Japan when she married baseball superstar Joe DiMaggio. During the trip, she had included a series of visits to the army posts in Korea, aiming to boost soldiers’ morale.
