Al was inducted into "The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame" in 1988. He just turned 68.

Looks like Chuckies mom!

Al's most recent CD, "A Postcard From California," is quite good and highly recommended for serious Beach Boys fans.

Does Anybody Know if Al was in the US Army in 1967. I was stationed at Fort Gordon and I had a friend named Al Jardine.

Al Jardine enlisted in April, 1966, basic branch was medical, with emphasis on dentistry. Commissioned a captain, he later trained in counterintelligance with TDY detail as an agent with the Army Security Agency (ASA). His cover as a musician touring the world permitted him, especially when in Europe, to recieve and pass on sensitive ELINT intercepts from agents and operatives in Berlin, Warsaw, and Vienna. Captain Jardine was personally commended by President Nixon for efforts made in the exfiltration of several high-ranking KGB officers who sought to defect.

Jardine retired in 1984, with the rank of Lt.Colonel in a private ceremony held in Ft. Meade, MD attended by President Reagan, Vice President Bush, William Casey, and G. Gordon Liddy.

Complete fantasy.

Not necessarily fantasy. After all, Jim Morrison was the son of a Navy Admiral. Mike Nesmith was a veteran of the USAF.Alice Cooper, back when he was still Vince Furnier, served in the Coast Guard, rising to the rank of CPO. Heck, the keyboardist for The Electric Prunes served in the Army as a First Sergeant in the CID.

Dismissing this outright as complete fantasy is not sufficient but Gus Krieger needs to prove his bona fides here to be taken seriously.

I met Al today I work at a petstore and he as soo RUDE !! Bought alot of ca food but I could not believe that he as such a rude peron .

I can personally vouch for the bona fides of Major J.G. "Gus" Krieger as an officer and a gentleman. Owing to his branch of service being Intelligence, the specifics of his duties are not for public discussion.

Let me also state that, while on active duty with the Counterintelligence Corps, Lieutenant Colonel Jardine served with distinction and unique intrepidity. His personal sacrifices, masquerading as an icon for the indolent, dubiously-hygenic, 60s counterculture did not go unnoticed.

I know his sacrificing the enjoyment of watching Firing Line while partaking of a fine cigar and portion of cognac was painful nearly to the level of wisdom-tooth extraction. A process with which Al Jardine, DDS has a nodding acquaintance.

This blog is to be commended for its attention to the parochial social archeology of the Pacific Northwest.

Sorry. that is insufficient bona fides (but then, if you really knew anything about intel, you would know this,

I can vouch for the Rudeness Factor. I was assigned by the local newspaper in Virginia, to get a few snaps of him. He was not just "very", but was "EXTREMELY", obnoxious. I literally couldn't believe the difference between the sunny disposition The Beach Boys marketed, vs. the reality of his personality. Not angered, but permanently disappointed.
