# How can I find out what time it is using military times?

I never understood military time.

 +1 vote! +7 you voted Answer by  CandyJohn (138) Military time features no colon separating minutes and doesn't feature an AM PM. So midnight would be 0000 instead of 12:00 and noon would be 1200 instead of 12:00. Miltary time goes from 0000 to 2359. If I said meet me at 2051, I mean 8:51 PM. If I said me at 0851, I mean 8:51 AM.

After 12 noon, take the civilian time and add 12 to get the military time. For example, 4:00 PM is 16:00 hours in military time.

For example, if it is 13:00, all you would so is subtract 12 from the 13. That would make it 1:00 PM.

 +1 vote! +7 you voted Answer by  TheAnswerFairy (2345) Military time uses 24 hours instead of 12. If it is before noon, the time is the same: 8:00am=800 hours. After noon, subtract 12 to get "normal" time.

 +1 vote! +6 you voted Answer by  joantherea (14) Military time is really quite simple. It uses a 24-hour clock. That means that 1:00 p.m. our time is 1300 military time. The first 12 hours of a day are the same. Then after that, you add one hour to 12 for 1:00 p.m. etc.

 +1 vote! +6 you voted Answer by  bean11 (2803) Military time is also known as 24 hour time, because it uses a 24 hour scale instead of 12. All you need to do is add 12 hours to the time if it's during the afternoon, or subtract 12 hours if it's nighttime.

 +1 vote! +5 you voted Answer by  Cecilia (2828) Military time is simply a 24 hr clock instead of two 12 hr clocks (AM and PM). You start adding 12 after Noon, so 2:30PM becomes 14:30.

 +1 vote! +5 you voted Answer by  malou21 (134) After 12:00 noon the 1:00 in the afternoon must read 1300(thirteen hundreds hours). For examples the time is 2200. Computation is involved. 2200 minus 1200 the answer is 10pm.

 +1 vote! +4 you voted Answer by  joantheresa (1421) Military time uses a 24 hr. clock. So after 12 noon, you add 1 for each hr. 1 p.m. is 1300 hrs., 2 p.m. is 1400 hrs. etc.
