What is Military Time?

We all know about the conventional way of telling ad reading time right? First, it is 12 AM to 11:59 AM and then the same cycle continues with the PM i.e. 12 PM to 11:59 PM. But in Military time, we just make things a bit easier and straightforward by using the 24-hour format instead of the 12-hour format. And how that works is that we would start the day with 12 AM, we start it with 00 and instead of repeating everything back from 1 after 12, we go on to 13:00, 14:00 up to 23:59, after which again get the 00:00 that we started with. Military Time also avoids using the “:” between the hours and minutes, so the actual time would look like 1100, 1345, 2359, and so on.

Uses and Advantages of Military Time

Military time has a lot of uses and advantages over the regular 12-hour clock-style time. Here are some of the key advantages:

  • Military time takes away any opportunity of confusion between the AM and PM time. The earlier problem of setting up an alarm for AM but accidentally setting it up for PM instead is easily solved with military time.
  • This time format also reduces any sort of confusion while communicating. You could tell someone the time as 2235 and they’d know right away that it is supposed to convey 10:35 at night, i.e. 10:35 PM.
  • Many emergency and official institutions like hospitals, fire stations, police stations, and military establishments use this to reduce any opportunity for mistakes with time.
