is a Department of the Army-sponsored program for single Service Members, single parents and single DoD employees. It provides single Service Members with the opportunity to actively participate in improving morale, increasing self-sufficiency, and assists in the development of tomorrow’s leaders. The core components of Well Being, Recreation & Leisure, and Community Service create the foundation of the Army BOSS Program. BOSS provides opportunities daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly for these three components.
BOSS holds an MSC Meeting on the first Tuesday of every month and the Full Council Meeting on the third Tuesday of every month. These meeting are always held at 1330 in the Nelson Recreation Ballroom. The Nelson Recreation Center is on 2nd Division Drive.

The BOSS program

is designed to be the collective voice for the single Service Member. BOSS does not supersede the Chain of Command, but it does support and compliment the Command mission. Ultimately, BOSS has an impact on the readiness and retention of our Service Members and service members.
The BOSS program at Joint Base Lewis-McChord is continually working to improve all aspects of life as a single Soldier. We meet monthly and every unit has a BOSS representative.
Participate, don't hesitate! Single Service Members make a very big difference! BOSS is open to single Service Members of all ranks, and all MWR eligible patrons. For information on BOSS call 253- 967-5636.

BOSS Components

Well Being includes those issues that Service Members can directly or indirectly influence to enhance their morale, living environment, or personal growth and development. Issues raised during BOSS meetings will be directed to the appropriate command or staff agency for resolution on the installation. Army-wide issues are forwarded to the Army Family Action Plan Conference for possible DA resolution.

Recreation and Leisure. Fun activities are planned by the BOSS council working in conjunction with the MWR Advisor and CSM. These events are geared towards the desires of the Single Service Members on that installation.

Community Service. BOSS makes a difference by volunteering in community projects and events. This is always voluntary in nature, and Service Members find this to be personally rewarding.
