Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS)
The Fort George G. Meade Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers Program (BOSS) supports the overall quality of life for the single and unaccompanied service members (including single parents) on the installation. The Fort Meade BOSS program supports the chain of command by identifying quality of life issues and concerns by providing recommendations for improvement.
It assists single service members in identifying and planning recreational and leisure activities that are offered in a safe and exciting environment. It provides an opportunity for single service members to participate and contribute to their respective communities and gives the individual a sense of responsibility and involvement.
The BOSS program is vital to overall mission accomplishment and serves as a unified voice for single service members. Find out more about your unit and installation program so BOSS can become one of your many tools for success.
