      But what if you’d like to check what is the military time right now? In everyday applications the commonly used separator between hours and minutes is a colon (e.g., computers show the time in the 24-hour system in most countries). Both digital wristwatches and 24-hour clocks are sources of military time. Many digital watches provide the option of displaying the time in either regular or military format. Switching back and forth is usually done by pressing a button labeled “12/24” or something similar several corporations manufacture 24-hour clocks. The military divided the world into 24 time zones and utilizes the phonetic alphabet to identify each time zone. The 24-hour clock, also known as military time, tells time by dividing the day into 24-hour increments, numbered 0000 to 2400. Military time differs from standard time, which uses numbers 1 through 12 and an a.m./p.m. The U.S. Military uses Zulu time for various purposes, including aviation and military operations. It is a 12-hour time standard, centered on a prime meridian at 0 degrees longitude. In fact, this time zone was originally created by pilots to be understood over radio. In fact, the military phonetic alphabet has changed slightly over the years, with the letter “Z” now being replaced by “Zebra” or “Zulu”. Below is a convenient chart that you can use to convert military times to regular times. For a full breakdown of how to learn military time take a look at our military time guide. If you want to convert another military time or a standard AM/PM time back to military time you can do so using our tool to convert military time on the fly. This site has a wide array of resources to help you to learn, pronounce, read, convert, and tell military time. Because military personnel can be involved in missions that cross time zones, they need a common time zone reference, so they know they’re talking about the same thing. “Zulu” or “Z” indicates that the time zone being referenced is Greenwich Mean Time (Coordinated Universal Time), the time zone that regulates the world’s clocks. In military time, 0000 or “zero hundred hours” is the correct way to indicate midnight (12 am).
