Elmo Zumwalt III died of cancer in 1988, aged 42, possibly as a result of Agent Orange. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Orange

Zumwalt said in 1986 that "'I am a lawyer and I don't think I could prove in court, by the weight of the existing scientific evidence, that Agent Orange is the cause of all the medical problems - nervous disorders, cancer and skin problems - reported by Vietnam veterans, or of their children's severe birth defects. But I am convinced that it is."
