How do you read military time?
If the military time says something like 0100 hours, it means it is exactly 1am. This is because 01 is 1 in the morning, and 00 is the minutes past it. For pm times, such as 1400 hours, the first two numbers are on a 24-hour clock. 14 means 2pm, and 00 means there are no minutes past. If it says 1632 hours, the 16 means 4pm, and the 32 means 32 minutes past. Its quite easy when you understand. Hope I helped!

Because you don't have to distinguish between AM and PM. 3:00am and 3:00pm are different so it's easier to say 0300 for AM and 1500 for PM and you can clearly see the difference.
Military time is the 24 hour clock. It was created to avoid any confusion between similar sounding times such as 2:00am and 2:00pm. If this was sent over a radio with bad reception for instance! This would be 0200 hours and 1400 hours in military time.
Answer. Military time is used as anyone would use time. The military uses a 24-hour clock. They would refer to 5:00pm as 1700. This helps to ensure that there is no confusion as to what time of day, morning or afternoon, that is meant.
Time based on the 24 hour day. Instead of AM and PM, time is stated as 0800 for 8 AM, 1300 for 1 PM, 1900 for 7 PM, etc., and 2359 for 1 minute before midnight. Military time is - if the clock says it is 3:00 pm in our time, in milatary time it would say and be 15:00 pm hundred hours in military ti…me. Military time runs on a 24 hour clock instead of a 12 hour clock, thereby elimating the need for AM and PM. 9:00 AM = 0900 hours 1:00 PM = 1300 hours 9:00 PM = 2100 hours ***An easy way to remember- IF IT"S PM-JUST ADD 12:) Military time is an easy way to announce times over the radio. It uses the 24 hour clock, so 18:00h is the same as 6:00 pm. (MORE)
Space archive states that military time doesn't use a colon unlessshowing the seconds but does end with 'hours' so 1300:05 hourswould be 5 seconds after 1:00 PM.
you dont have to look for am or pm and youll appear to be hardcore
All you have to do is count the hours without starting back at one. So 1:00pm would be 13, 2:00 would be 14, 3:00 would be 15, ect., and for minutes you just do that regularly.
The British Royal Navy adopted the 24-hour clock in 1915, and the other Allied armed forces followed soon after..- it is not actually called "military time" and in the British forces at least, it has been known as " Zulu time " since the early 1960's
1. click "adjust" 2. click the g and on left of the g-shock there will appear either a p or a 24 . if there a p it's standard time if it is a 24 then it's in military time
You should honor them when you want to. like after their death or on the day of their death.
The military officers are very strict, so being on time is part of their disciplinary 'activities'.
From after midnight to 12 noon is simply the number in hundreds: 0100 is 1 a.m., etc. After noon, keep counting: 1200 is noon, 1300 is 1 p.m., 1500 is 3 p.m. It's international time, that's all. You might be thrown off by how it's pronounced: Oh-One-Hundred is 0100 (1 a.m.), Thirteen Hundred is 1300… (1 p.m.) The military often uses Zulu time, the time at the Prime Meridian as a constant. That way no one has to do time conversions, they know all times are Zulu times usually indicated by a Z at the end of the time. (MORE)
In the evening when the sun is just about to set and you are relaxed and have a good book to read!
5:00 pm. The easy way to convert regular time to military time is to simply add 12 to the normal time after 12 noon. So for example 1 pm is 1300 because 12 + 1 = 13, and 5pm would be 1700 because 12 + 5 = 17 and so on up until 12 midnight which starts it over again at 0000.
You need to make the time. When you get a hour or other amount of time at school or at work while you are eating your lunch or some thing, read a book and be in your own world. Maybe read just before you go to bed or even in the car or even while you are watching the TV, it can be so simple .

The (US) military counts time from midnight to midnight in one continuous count. The day commences with 0001, and end at 2359. You civilians would count normally up to Noon. From 1:00 p.m, just add 12 to each of the numbers. For example, 1:00 p.m. would be 1300 hours (spoken aloud as 'thirteen h…undred hours'), 8:00 p.m. would 2000 hours (spoken aloud as 'twenty hundred hours') and so forth. Now if that's not confusing enough, please see the related link below for a little rib-tickling radio conversation with 'the tower', alleged to be a true exchange. (MORE)
The 24 hour clock is not exclusive to the military. In fact, most of the world's population uses the 24 hour clock, rather than the 12 hour clock common to the United States, Canada, and a couple other countries, whose usage goes back for centuries. The US military probably picked it up from the… British and Canadian forces, or possibly from the French, during the First World War. (MORE)
10:23 a.m. The military time system counts all 24 hours of the day, so there is no 'a.m.' or 'p.m.' Instead, you continue after 12:00 p.m. all the way back to midnight, which is '0000' in military time. For example, 1:30 p.m. is 1330 and 2:45 p.m. is 1445. 1:30 a.m. is 0130, and 2:45 a.m. is 0245. I…f you need to convert civilian to military time, add 12 hours if you are past noon. Converting to civilian, subtract 12 if after noon. (MORE)
The military was part of the monarchy and the Queen was the person who gave the orders.
The ancient Egyptians divided the day into 24 hours. There are diagrams of circles divided into 24 sections in the astronomical ceiling in the tomb of Senemut. Sundials use some or all of the 24 hour dial, because they measure the position of the sun in the sky. Sometimes, for artistic rather than …practical reasons, all the 24 hour marks are shown. Medieval clocks often used the 24-hour analog dial, influenced by the widespread example of the astrolabe It would be easier for people to understand what time it was. For example, 12:00pm to us is 24:00 to them because it's easier for them to not remember am and pm. (MORE)
Yes, it definitely was the best in its time. This was due to its famous discipline and its superior weaponry. They also had a bulldog determination to win. If they were beaten, and they were at times, they would keep coming back until they wore the enemy down and conquered.
0400 hours in military time is 4 a.m. in the civilian world. However the US Marine Corps does not use the term 'hours'; they would call it '0400.' The Army and Air Force would say '0400 hours.' 4:00 a.m.
1615 in military time is 16:15 for civilians who use the 24 hour clock, or 4:15 p.m.
No need to. Example: 4:00 p.m. is 1600 hours. 16 is the 16th hour of the day, which is 4: p.m. Additionally, 4:15 is 1615 hours, 16 being the 16th hour of the day and 15 being the 15th minute of the hour. 161525 is the 16th hour of the day, 15 is the 15th minute of the hour, and 25 is the 25th se…cond of the minute. the latter is rarely used. And only in cases of absolute need of the seconds. Say, the launching of a satellite. (MORE)
Conversion from 12-hour time to 24-hour time: . Is the time AM or PM? . AM: Is the hour 12? . Yes: Subtract 12 from the hour (make it 0). . No: The hour stays the same. . PM: Is the hour 12? . Yes: The hour stays the same. . No: Add 12 to the hour. . If the hour is one digit, add… a zero before it. Examples: . 12:14 AM = 0014 . 7:29 AM = 0729 . 11:34 AM = 1134 . 12:48 PM = 1248 . 1:51 PM = 1351 . 11:55 PM = 2355 (MORE)
It is 2:30 in the afternoon. The military clock just uses a 24 hour clock instead of AM and PM. So if the day starts at midnight the first hour after midnight that you would call 1AM is 0100 in military time and so on. Noon becomes 1200 and 1:00PM is the 13th hour so it is 1300 and so on.
Zero-three hundred, or "0" three hundred. It is always the number, never the letter. for instance "O-three hundred hours" (pronounced "Oh-three hundred") would be very incorrect and completely inaccurate.
1400 military time is the same as 2 p.m. in the civilian world, although it is worth noting that many European countries use military time in train schedules and airline arrivals and departures. Additionally, with the military spread throughout the world, it is common to use the local time zone; e.g…. 1400 EST (eastern standard time) to ensure there is no confusion. . 2:00 p.m. (MORE)
5 a.m. in military time is '0500' if you are a U.S. Marine, or '0500 hours' if you are a member of the Army or Air Force. When used in a written form, it is common to add the time zone; e.g; "the attack will commence 0500 (local), led by..." 0500
8 am. Any military time less than 1300 is the simple time in hours (first two digits) and minutes (last two digits) in the morning if the first two digits are less than twelve or afternoon if the first two digits are twelve. When the first two digits are equal two or greater than 13 then, …if you subtract 12 from these, this gives the time in hours in the afternoon. Obviously again the last two digits are the minutes.

10:40pm 12:00 or 1200 hours (12 noon), plus 10 hours = 2200 or 2200 hours, plus 40 or 40 minutes. 2240 or 2240 hours = 10:40pm
1t's 4:53 in the afternoon. From the #12 you start counting till you get to 16.... 12 - 13, 14, 15, 16 = 4 - remember Don't count the nunmber 12 You have 4 then you just keep the seconds the same so the time is 4:53 in the afternoon. 4:53 am would be 0453 because you neither add nor subtract 12. 1…2 because their ar 12 numbers in a time or a clock. So from one second AFTER 12 midnight til 12 noon the time is the same just add a 0 first. One second AFTER 12 noon till one second AFTER 12 midnight - add 12. (MORE)
1:05 AM. The 24 hour clock is used in many situations these days, not just the military. It avoids confusion.
It largely has to do with eliminating confusion over times. 1300 hours can only be one time. Saying "one o'clock" can mean two different times.
Actually, what many Americans call "Military Time" (which is primarily used and called that in the United States & Canada), is a simply a perversion of the Official World Standard time (ISO 8601), used in most of the world (esp in Europe). Whereas, Americans prefer the AM (Ante-Meri-dian) & PM (Pos…t Meri-dian) approach, which simply means Before Mid-Day (Noon) & Post Mid-Day in Latin; the rest of the world actually uses the standard 24-hour clock, in which case a person can't be confused as to which part of the day it is after asking for the time (perhaps in casinos, or other places where there few or no windows). Why do we call military time a "perversion"? Because the way it's used. When you ask what time it is and it's 1 O'Clock, that would be 100 in military time, but what is Â½ (half) of that? well, we know that 50 is Â½ of 100, but now we'd come to a problem! It's perverted and confused by taking something that is 60 units based and applying it to something that is 100 unit based. "Military Time" is generally used slightly different from the proper 24-hour clock, by omitting the colon ":" which separates the hours from the minutes and by consistently making it 4-digits long by adding a "0" to the front when the hour portion is less than 10. The Canadian armed forces first started to use the 24-hour clock in 1917. The the US Navy in 1920 & the US Army in 1942. Shortly after lazy American Soldiers began to bastardize the system, by saying things like 0800 (Zero Eight Hundred) instead of 8 O'Clock or 1600 instead of 16 O'Clock, etc.... This verbal corruption eventually spread and became so commonly used by other US military branches, that it became known as "Military Time". (MORE)
Since military time follows universal time (sometimes referred to as civilian time) with some formatting changes, both 0000 and 2400 are correct. According to the 1884 International Conference for the purpose of fixing a prime meridian and a universal day the day is to "be counted from zero to twent…y-four hours". This means that 0000 is midnight at the beginning of the day and 2400 is midnight at the end of the day. (ie 2400 04JUN is the same moment as 0000 05JUN) In practice, to avoid confusion, most schedules / logs end at 2359 and begin at 0001. While not in accordance with the standard, you will sometimes see universal time reference end or arrival times as greater than 24:00 (eg open 07:00 to 24:15). You will never see this in military time. The above example would be written as 0700 to 0015. (MORE)
"Military time" is no different from "civilian time", except that it uses a 24 hour clock rather than a 12 hour clock. There is no "50:30", since there are only 24 hours in a day.
There are many different books about the military. Some of the better books are "Shane Comes Home", "The Forever War", "The Good Soldiers", and "The Long Road Home: A Story of War and Family."
1505 on the 24 hour clock (as used by the military and others) is 3:05 p.m. on the 12 hour clock.
12am in military time is 0000 or 00:00 ("zero hundred" or simply "midnight") . 12pm is 1200 (twelve-hundred. Or midday).
In military time: . 6:00 AM is 0600 hr . 6:00 PM is 1800 hr
You can format normal time to military time. For example you couldhave the time entered as: 13:00 If you then press Ctrl-1 to bring you to format cells and then goto Number and then Custom, you can change the format to: hmm It will now display the time as: 1300
In 24-hour time, also called "Zulu time", 08:00pm is expressed as20:00. In military jargon, it would be pronounced, "twenty-hundredhours).
not alot of people there mostly into onther news like the newspaper but nothing to do with the military
Military hierarchies tend to be much the same everywhere in every time: small, manageable units under a commander are placed under the command of a higher commander, and these larger groups are placed under the command of even higher commanders. The terminology and precise size of these groups chang…ed from time to time and from place to place, so an answer could only be made about a particular army or navy in Shakespeare's time. (MORE)
3:52 is 0352 or 1552 in military time, depending if it is AM or PM.
21:15 in military time is the same as 9:15pm in traditional time. To convert from military time, the hours up to 12 are the same asnormal time, they are just all AM times. For anything above 12, subtract 12, but then count it as a PM time.
same 04:30 hours only changes after noon so 1 pm = 13:00 hours for example
same 10:00 hours only changes after noon so 1 pm = 13:00 hours for example
