BOSS holds luncheon to show appreciation to service members, civilian workforce

The Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers program and Single Marine Program worked together to provide a luncheon to Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall service members and civilians in appreciation for their hard work and dedication each day Friday in the JBM-HH Community Center.

Throughout the luncheon, games were provided, and prizes were raffled off.

“This is a great way to show to the service members and civilian workers that their sacrifices don’t go unnoticed here,” said Sgt. Kevin Abraham, BOSS president. “To be able to give back to the community of JBM-HH and to the service members (who) we work side by side with every day and show our appreciation, helps strengthen to bond between the branches. To see them sitting down and laughing together and putting their minds at ease, there (isn’t a) better feeling.”

BOSS offers ways for service members to get involved throughout the communities by volunteering and serving as an outlet for Soldiers to unwind from the up tempo of day-to-day life as a service member.

“We go into the barracks and ensure their living conditions are above satisfactory and follow up with maintenance that needs to be done,” said Abraham. “We offer leisure activities such as trips outside of the (National Capital Region) or game nights at the barracks, all of which are suggested by the service member.”
