Three Pillars of BOSS
Quality of Life

Quality of Life for single Soldiers deals primarily with those things that the single Soldiers can directly or indirectly influence to enhance their morale, living environment, or personal growth and development.  Some of the issues addressed by BOSS councils include dining facilities, education, fitness centers, Soldiers' quarters, medical and dental care, commissary, and Army Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES).

Quality of Life issues identified or raised during BOSS meetings are directed to the appropriate command or staff agency for resolution and resolved at the lowest level.


Recreation and Leisure

Recreation and leisure activities may be planned solely by the BOSS council or in conjunction with other Morale, Wellness and Recreation (MWR) activities.

Soldiers assure the primary role in planning BOSS events.  Events planned by BOSS councils should meet the needs and desires of single soldiers on the installations. 

BOSS councils have sponsored events such as Soldier talent competitions, concerts, dances, and trips. 

BOSS may also coordinate with installation commercial sponsorship personnel when planning some major events.

Community Service

BOSS councils often elect to participate in community programs or projects which make a difference in the lives of others, the community, and ultimately, themselves.

BOSS members have volunteered to take part in Big Brother/Big Sister, Special Olympics, and Habitat for Humanity.

Some councils have developed their own programs which include sending packages to deployed Soldiers and Battle Buddies Against Drunk Drivers (BBADD).

This component is voluntary in
nature and must be in accordance with the installation volunteer program.
