See Figure 5.5 for an example clock and Table 5.3 for a military time conversion chart. The question sometimes arises whether midnight is written as 2400 or 0000. Military and emergency services personnel refer to midnight both ways. However, digital watches and clocks that display time in a 24-hour format and computer equipment treat midnight as the start of a new day and express it as 0000. For example, 1 PM would be expressed as 1300 hours. This type of timekeeping is based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and allows for a universal way of telling time across different countries and cultures. Military time is often split into morning and afternoon periods, with noon being 1200 hours and midnight being 0000 hours or 2400 hours. 2 PM standard time (12-hour time format) is equal to 1400 military time (24-hour time format). To avoid confusion when discussing times and dates across time zones, the military uses the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is a 24-hour time-keeping system, which uses the earth’s prime meridian located near Greenwich, England, as its center. This allows military personnel to converse about a specific time based on the same time zone foundation.
