Military Time

Military time is a concise method of expressing time used by the military, law enforcement, hospitals, and other entities. Military time uses a 24-hour time scale that makes the use of “A.M.” or “P.M.” unnecessary. Midnight corresponds to 0000, 1 PM corresponds to 1300, and so on.

The following table provides an easy way to convert between military time and regular time.
