In the latter sense it can be used for either military or civilian personnel assigned or hired for duties in the military dining facility excluding cooking. Duties include washing dishes, food preparation, and bussing tables.The image of enlisted soldiers peeling potatoes (to remove the skin) in an installation's kitchen was once associated with the popular culture image of KP duty due to its frequent appearance in mid-twentieth century movies and comic strips about life in the US services.
