Military time will always be used for assigning tasks and planning missions. Military time is part of the first line of security and will always be part of the military’s heritage and tradition. The main thing to know about military time is that it never changes. This makes it easier for everyone, especially new soldiers, to understand when they need to be somewhere. The new boot camp recruit will learn military time before even entering boot camp. Their recruiter should teach them this, because when they arrive, they’re not going to be told 5 am, they’re going to be told 0500. Chow starts at 0600, not 6 am, and ends at 0800, not 8 am. The 24-hour clock is primarily used in the non-english speaking countries in Europe, Lation America, Asia and Africa. Most English speaking countries expect The United States usually switches back and forth between 12-hour and 24-hour time because neither have been established as the standard. Although the 24 hour clock is well established, the world and communication is constantly changing and who knows what the changing global community will need next. Many people are unfamiliar with military time, making it difficult to convert from the 12-hour clock to the 24-hour clock (and vice versa). Fortunately, there are a few techniques you can use to help make this conversion easier. If you don’t have access to our calculator, you can also use a military time chart. This chart makes it easy to convert time from one format to the other. To minimize confusion, military time blends out all those oddities and exceptions and uses only the 25 primary, full-hour time zones, from UTC-12 to UTC+12. Converting military time to the 12-hour format is simple for the first half of the day, from 1 am to 12 pm, as the numbers are the same in both systems.
