      Military refers to this time zone as Zulu Time, and they attach the “Zulu” (Z) suffix, to ensure the time-zone referred to is clear. That might change for you if you have just enrolled in boot camp or you are thinking about a career in the military. It is important to understand the 24-hour military time system before interacting with military personnel. European countries commonly set digital clocks to a 24-hour clock. In conversation, especially in French-speaking countries, saying “16” or “16 hundred” to refer to 4 p.m. The Egyptians measured night and day independently. During the day, they used the sun to measure time. This means the Egyptians used two separate clocks, dividing day and night into two disproportionate parts. To convert 1600 military time to civilian time, subtract 12 from 16 to get 4. Emergency services such as nursing homes, hospital wards, and intensive care units also use the 24-hour clock but do not refer to it as military time. Military time is a day clock that measures hours to 24 instead of 12 hours like civilian time. Military time is used to avoid confusion between a.m. The 24-clock is used by militaries, most European countries, and businesses engaged in 24-hour operations, like airlines and railroads. The military time notation clearly distinguishes between the beginning and end of the day. However, in the 12-hour format, there is no such distinction.
