The Army may have completed its plan to downsize the civilian workforce at Fort Hood, but the number of soldiers assigned to the post could continue to drop this year as the Army works to shed 16,000 troops by the end of September.
Fort Hood sent out 72 pink slips to civilian employees in November. By the mandatory separation date of Jan. 10, officials said they only had let go of 45 employees. The bulk of cuts hit the Directorate of Emergency Services. As of Jan. 5, information from post officials showed 5,289 civilian employees working at Fort Hood. In September, there were 5,351.
