The Better Opportunities for Single Servicemembers (BOSS) program represents the voice of the single servicemember. If you're a single servicemember, BOSS members advocate for you by advancing quality of life issues on the installation, and in the barracks, to senior leaders on post and throughout the Army.  "Let Your Voice Be Heard"

The BOSS program is based on three program pillars:

  • Quality of Life
  • Community Service
  • Recreation and Leisure

As a member of BOSS, you have a voice in how you live, how you spend your leisure time and how you support the community around you. BOSS Soldiers:

  • Coordinate and participate in community services projects
  • Organize recreation and leisure activities
  • Actively support the quality of life needs of single Soldiers

BOSS Volunteers

Want to get involved in the community and don't know how? Join BOSS on one of our many volunteer outings or opportunities.

Garrison BOSS programs are managed by a Senior Enlisted Advisor, MWR Advisor and BOSS President. BOSS serves the Single Soldier Community - active, guard and reserve - and single parents, geographical bachelors, and other branches of service and Foreign Service Members.
