Military to 12 Hour Time

Military Time
12 Hour Time

The military clock measures time beginning at midnight and going for a full 24 hours until the next midnight. The military clock uses hours that are the same length as the standard clock.  For example if it is 6:00 P.M. a military clock says that it is 1800. You read this time "eighteen hundred".  This simple means that it is 18 hours and 0 minutes after midnight. If it is 8:15 P. M. you say it is 2015. You read this time "twenty fifteen". This means it is 20 hours and 15 minutes after midnight. The chart below will help you with converting standard time to military time.
