Military time is a concise method of expressing time used by the military, law enforcement, hospitals, and other entities. Military time uses a 24-hour time scale that makes the use of a.m. or p.m. unnecessary. Midnight corresponds to 0000, 1 p.m. corresponds to 1300, and so on.
The following table provides a convenient way to convert between military time and regular time.
