How to convert military time?

Converting Military time is a straightforward process that anyone can master.

  • From 0000 to 1200, the time is essentially the same as the standard time. Include am for the morning.
  • From 1300 to 2400 - subtract 1200 to get the standard time
  • From 1200 to 1259, you will add a colon and include pm to indicate the time is after 12:00 noon
  • 0000 and 2400 are practically at 12:00 am midnight.

Example 1730 - 1230 = 5:00 pm

Military time, with its precision, is the standard for all major emergency services in the United States and Canada, providing a secure and error-free system.

Because colons are not used in this time format, they differ from the standard 24-hour format and are pronounced differently.
