BOSS is a program which supports the overall quality of life for single soldiers, geographical bachelors and single parents. BOSS identifies well being issues and concerns by recommending improvements to the chain of command. The heart of the BOSS program is motivated single soldiers with a strong senior enlisted advisor and guidance from FMWR.
This pillar focuses on meeting Soldiers’ and Service members’ leisure and recreational needs. As such, suggestions and ideas are solicited from the single Soldiers and single Service member’s representatives of the Tri-Border area at our bi-weekly meetings. These events are coordinated by BOSS, and Trips and Tour in MWR. Leisure and Recreational activities are designed to provide alternative, opportunities on/ off post for Soldiers and Service members to get out. Some leisure and recreational activities include Car Racing, Football, and Phantasialand in Germany.
BOSS helps to promote Soldiers/Service members participation in many community service activities in USAG Schinnen, and in the surrounding communities. It provides patrons’ the chance to meet new people, and grow as individuals. Soldiers/Service members are exposed to new people, ideas and learn new skills. Volunteering is good as it gives Soldiers/Service members a sense of involvement and achievement, beyond their day to day activities and responsibilities. Some community service activities include Trunk or Treat (Halloween), Kinderfest & Easter Egg Hunt and the AFNORTH children’s Holiday Party.
QUALITY OF LIFE
This third pillar of BOSS targets enhancing single soldiers’/single service members’ morale, living environment, and their personal growth and development. Depending on the issue at hand, it will be handled by the soldiers’/service members chain of command. However, BOSS provides 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, BOSS against drunk driving and single soldiers/service members’ appreciation dinners.
The BOSS Program is NOT just for the BOSS Reps your Comments, Question, and Concerns are Welcome and Appreciated.
