Renowned architect Gilbert Seltzer has died at age 106. During World War II, he was one of the 1,100 men who made up the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, also known as the Ghost Army, who helped the allies win the war with a series of creative deceptions that included inflatable tanks and wooden airplanes. Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist remembers a life well lived.
