SNAPPED: US Army volunteers lend a hand at Old Bill’s

JACKSON, Wyo. — Old Bill’s Fun Run had seven extra sets of hands to help around the Town Square thanks to US Army BOSS (Better Opportunity for Single Soldiers).

US ARMY BOSS is a program designed to engage soldiers in community-enhancing projects and service activities, and is available to any group or cause in need. Seven enlisted soldiers from Ft. Carson, Colorado drove to Jackson for the weekend to help nonprofit booths haul supplies and tents to and from the town square, assist with route control waste management, and the flag ceremony.

Their time in Jackson won’t soon be forgotten. Each soldier shared their favorite experiences: four applauded Jackson’s friendliness and hospitality. One loved the Bar-J Wranglers Chuckwagon. One was struck by the majesty of the Tetons, and another was inspired by Jackson’s economy and local amenities.

Local host Phil Pearce shared these photos of the US ARMY BOSS hard at work.
