What is BOSS?
Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS) is a program that supports the overall quality of single soldier’s lives. BOSS identifies well being issues and concerns by recommending improvements through the chain of command. BOSS encourages and assists single soldiers in identifying and planning for recreational and leisure activities. Additionally, it gives single soldiers the opportunity to participate in and contribute to their respective communities.

History of the Program
The BOSS program originated in 1989 to respond to the recreational needs of single soldiers aged 18-25 who make up 35% of the Army. As the program was implemented throughout the Army, it became evident that quality of life was the primary concern to single soldiers. In 1991, the Chief of Staff of the Army officially expanded BOSS to include all aspects of soldiers’ lives. Some BOSS members then began to express an interest in participating in community service project, which was added as a component of the program. These components, recreation and leisure, well being and community service are the core components of the BOSS program.
