Joe DiMaggio will go down in history as being one of the most popular baseball players of all time. Even his name will ring a bell in the minds of people who pay little attention to America’s pastime. However, they might know that Joe was one of the lucky men to be romantically entangled with the one and only Marylin Monroe.
Like other able-bodied men of his time, Joe joined the army in preparation for WWII. However, he was never on the frontlines, so he never actually had any real-life battle experience. Instead, his superiors assigned him to become an athletics instructor, and he would travel around America to teach servicemen how to stay fit.
