> How Does BOSS Work?
Installations establish a formal BOSS program, to include a BOSS council consisting of single Soldiers representatives from installation units. Typically, the installation Command Sergeant Major serves as the senior military advisor to the council. An installation MWR advisor is appointed to provide guidance in planning activities, financial accountability, and marketing. Motivated single Service Soldiers with strong senior military and MWR guidance are the backbone of the BOSS program.
