The following pictures are from Larry Yoder. Larry was stationed in Phan Thiet at LZ Betty. He returned to Vietnam with his son Larry Jr. in 2006. Larry and his son braved the long climb to the top of Big Tit / Whiskey Mountain. He was assigned to HHC 3-506th 101st Abn Div. His tour of duty was from May 68 to June 69. He extended for a few days to get an early out. His mos was radio repairman, thinking they had sent him to the wrong unit he became the radio operator on top of Big Tit,( Nui Ta Dom Mountain ) / Whiskey Mountain.
