Military Time 24-hour clock

Military Time

Military time is used by the military, law enforcement, police, airports, hospitals and by the international standard ISO 8601. In hospitals, the use of military time prevents any ambiguity as to when events occurred in a patient's medical history. A day runs from midnight to midnight and is divided into 24 hours. Since it divides a day into 24 hours, military time provides a more accurate time data for keeping records. Also called the "24-hour clock"


According to WikiHow, to share military time verbally and there's a zero as the first digit, then say the first two digits as "Zero" and whatever number is next, followed by "Hundred Hours." If there's a 1 or 2 as the first digit, then say the first two numbers as a pair of numbers with a tens and ones digit, followed by "Hundred Hours." Here's are some examples:

  • 0100 hours is "Zero One Hundred Hours."
  • 0200 hours is "Zero Two Hundred Hours."
  • 0300 hours is "Zero Three Hundred Hours."
  • 1100 hours is "Eleven Hundred Hours."
  • 2300 hours is "Twenty Three Hundred Hours."
