      This ease continues through midday, which is 1200 (twelve hundred) hours. Time zones are measured as the number of hours offset from GMT. Thus, the Zulu time zone is expressed as UTC+0000, or Zulu time is zero hours ahead of GMT. Interestingly, the use of Zulu time in aviation has led to the widespread practice among pilots of referring to local time by its offset from Zulu time. Military time is a term that specifically refers to the way time is measured in the U.S., and it’s typically used by people working on military bases, such as ones overseas. This is to avoid any confusion between the hours before and after noon. With a system of time based on a 24-hour clock rather than twelve-hour intervals of am and pm, the hour numbers do not repeat. It can be confusing at first for civilians to understand time based on 24-hour intervals rather than a total of twelve repeating am and pm hours. This system of time eliminates any misunderstanding so that military personnel know clearly and precisely what time is indicated. Military Time is a time format using a 24 Hour Time system that eliminates the need for the designations A.M. Military Time is sometimes referred to as 24 Hour Time but this is incorrect. They are similar, but have nuance that can’t be skipped.
