    Curious to know if anyone is affliated with, or knows of Boys Town based in Omaha Ne.
    My dad went there for a few years as a teen and credits it with saving his life.
    I am going with my dad to a Boys Town Convention in Omaha later this summer. Anyone know about it?

    Spencer Tracy won an Oscar for his portrayal of Father Flanagan. I believe that the Post Office Department (no USPS back then) issued a postage stamp commemorating Boys Town. My sister visited Boys Town when she lived in Nebraska. She said it is a beautiful place and was a great experience. Enjoy your visit.
