The Fort Buchanan BOSS program supports the chain of command by identifying quality of life issues and concerns by providing recommendations for improvement.

It assists single Soldiers in identifying and planning recreational and leisure activities that are offered in a safe and exciting environment. It provides an opportunity for single Soldiers 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 soldiers.
