The service will be voluntary in nature and in accordance with the installation volunteer program. The program can be implemented in support of existing or established volunteer programs or programs developed by the BOSS committee.
  3. Well Being: For single service members, Well being includes those things that single service members can directly or indirectly influence to enhance their morale, living environment, or personal growth and development. The well being issue identified or raised during the BOSS meetings will be directed to the appropriated command or staff agency for resolution on the installation.
