Military Time--how do you remember it?

Military time--how do you remember it??

The easiest way to remember military time is:

For any time prior to 10:00 AM, simply add a zero before the hour. For example: nine o'clock in the morning would be spoken as "zero nine hundred" and written as 0900. 10:00 AM would be 1000, "ten hundred" and so on.

For any time after 12:00 PM (noon), simply add twelve to the time. For example, if the time of day is 3:00 PM, you add twelve to 3 and get 1500 or "fifteen hundred".
