      Military time is a method of timekeeping based on the 24 hour clock. It relies on a day that is divided into hours and minutes on a 24-hour cycle from midnight to midnight. Military time is commonly used in the United States, United Kingdom, Philippines, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Columbia, Pakistan, and Malaysia. The 24-hour time system is primarily used by military and emergency services in these countries, unlike the rest of the world. Civilian timekeeping in these countries primarily uses the 12-hour timekeeping system notated with A.M. Most other countries in the world use a variation of military time called 24-hour time for both civilian and military timekeeping. The military time converter chart above is a simple conversion table with standard time on the left column and its corresponding military time on the right. In most cases, it should be presented without the colon separator between minutes and hours. As such, it is not present in the military time chart above. The military time conversion chart below lists the standard 12-hour time format next to the 24-hour time format. This is followed by military time, UTC offset (military time zone), military time zone name, and the time zone letter code. The primary purpose of a Military Time chart is to create a simple link between both the military time and regular time formats. It is similar to any other conversion table that bridges two quantities on a common parameter. As per a general rule, military time lacks the time separator (dot or colon) present between the hour and minutes. In addition, the way of spelling each is different too. While military format requires saying the leading zero, regular time format has done away with it. An Army Time chart serves the purpose of converting one time format into the other that complies with the standard guidelines. The military time conversion chart below will allow you to easily read or convert military time. Making it simple to take standard (regular) AM/PM time and quickly convert it to military time (24-hour time) or vice versa.
