Housing for Single & Unaccompanied Soldiers

Housing assignments

  • E6 and below will be assigned to the barracks. Soldiers should not bring signficant household goods or furniture, as space is limited and furniture is provided.

In addition to checking out the Newcomer section of the website, be sure to bring bedding items, connect with your sponsor and have enough incidental cash (to be exchanged for Euro).

Upon arrival

BOSS - Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers

BOSS participants pose on a recent trip in a European city.

The mission of the BOSS program, a non-profit organization, is to enhance the morale and welfare of single Soldiers, increase retention and sustain combat readiness. BOSS is the collective voice of single Soldiers through the chain of command, which serves as a tool for commanders to gauge the morale of single Soldiers regarding quality of life issues. Additionally, BOSS also sponsors a variety of activities before, during and after deployment to maintain the morale of single Soldiers affected by increased operational tempo and deployment stress.
