Agent Orange cargo planes

Retired Air Force Maj. Wes Carter, seen July 8 at his home in McMinnville, Ore., flew for more than a decade on one of the most famous C-123s, known as "Patches" for holes left by enemy fire in Vietnam. He was diagnosed with potentially lethal prostate cancer in 2011. His doctor wrote in February 2013 that the cancer is "likely related to your exposure [to] Agent Orange."
