(Better Opportunities for Single Service Members)

View Event Calendar

Below you can find the monthly BOSS calendar highlighting different trips and events targeted to our Single Service Members.


We have many events throughout the year which are geared towards the desires of the participants on JBER.
Some of these include: fishing and ice fishing, snow machining, atving, indoor rock climbing, skeet and trap shooting, ice climbing, hiking, and more!


Our community service projects provide Soldiers valuable experience, skills and a sense of community pride and ownership. Our volunteer opportunities take us all around Anchorage to include, The Fisher House, Bean’s Cafe, The Red Cross, and more!


We have two meetings monthly on the first and third Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. During this time we discuss,
past events, plan upcoming events, community service projects, and quality of life issues that can directly or indirectly influence to enhance morale, living environment, or personal growth and development.


We offer a warm and welcoming environment for our participants to relax in 365 days a year. We aim to provide comfort to those who are away from their families and build morale during every holiday.

Better Opportunities for Single Service Members (BOSS) participants enhance their quality of life, contribute to their community through community service activities, and assist in the planning and execution of their own recreation and leisure events. Our services are available to those of any rank who are:

  • Single Soldiers

  • Single Airmen

Additionally, BOSS 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.
