Kitchen police, commonly called KP, hopefully will soon be an experience of the past for Fort Gordon soldiers, according to Col. Daniel Smaw, deputy director of industrial operations.
Approximately 240 civilians are tentatively scheduled to be hired to work in Fort Gordon's mess halls under the Modern Volunteer Army program to return soldiers to their duty of soldiering, Col. Smaw explained.
Pending final approval, the first civilians will begin appearing in the post's mess halls in early July, and the process will be completed within the next 60 days.

TEENS BEFORE THEIR TIME GLANCE
While 8- to 12-year-old girls often dress like teens, talk like teens and mature physically like teens, they appear to have strong ties to their families and a need for support.
Girls describe boys as very different from girls; they call them unreliable as friends.
Girls associate teasing and bullying with boys. The most hurtful dimension of teasing for the girls seems to be appearance-based.
As young girls are confronted with difficult teen issues such as dating and sex at an increasingly early age, they are learning that their family confidants are often unwilling or unable to discuss such issues.
Weight is of particular concern. Girls as young as 8 speak about dieting and calories.
While 75 percent of third-grade girls say they like the way they look, only 56 percent of seventh-graders do.
