Welcome

Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS) is a program that supports the overall quality of life for single Soldiers. 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, BOSS provides single Soldiers the opportunity to participate in and contribute to their respective communities. Motivated single Soldiers with strong senior Military and MWR guidance are the backbone of the BOSS Program.

Mission

Mission Statement:

  • To support the overall quality of life (QOL) for single and unaccompanied Soldiers
  • Encourages and assists Soldiers in identifying, planning, organizing and conducting leisure and recreational activities of their preference
  • Provides an opportunity for Soldiers to participate in and contribute to local communities
  • Identifies issues and provides mechanism to recommend improvements through Chain of Command
  • Offers Soldiers multiple opportunities to improve their Army career and put themselves ahead of the curve
Three Pillars of BOSS

I. Leisure and Recreation

This pillar focuses on meeting Soldiers’ leisure and recreational needs. As such, suggestions and ideas are solicited from the single Soldiers representatives of Fort Campbell at our bi-weekly meetings. These events are coordinated with BOSS, Warrior Zone and Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Leisure and Recreational activities are designed to provide alternative, opportunities on/ off post for Soldiers to get out of the barracks. Some leisure and recreational activities include Daytona Beach trips, Free movie nights at the Great Escape and trips to Gatlinburg.

II. Community Service

BOSS helps to promote Soldiers participation in many community service activities at Fort Campbell and in the surrounding communities. It provides a Soldier the chance to meet new people and grow as individuals. Soldiers are exposed to new people, ideas and learn new skills. Volunteering is good as it gives Soldiers a sense of involvement and achievement, beyond their day to day activities. Some community service activities are MP Halloween Assistant, Food Pantries and Toy Drives.

III. Quality of Life

This third pillar of BOSS targets enhancing single Soldiers’ morale, living environment, and personal growth and development. Depending on the issue at hand, it will be handled by the Soldiers’ chain of command. However, we provide Soldiers with documentation on issues they face such as smoking in the barracks, barracks policy letters and so on. Some quality of life activities include Commissary Awareness Month, Voters’ Registration and Single Soldiers Appreciation Dinners.

Meetings

Meetings are held every other Wednesday at Warrior Zone.  These meetings are for all BOSS Representatives at every level.  BOSS meetings are mandatory for all BOSS Representatives.  General Assembly meetings are at 1400.  All interested parties are welcome. 

Issues addressed during BOSS meetings will be formatted and submitted to the senior enlisted advisor, the Fort Campbell Garrison CSM, to seek resolution through the proper channels or staff agency. Issues that cannot be resolved at the installation level are coordinated through the Command Sergeant Major. An Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) Coordinator may be released by the Installation Commander to go forward to the Major Army Command (MACOM) AFAP.
