Military Time

The Navy operates on a 24-hour day. The hours are numbered from 1 to 24, starting at 00:00 (midnight) and 24:00 (midnight of the next day). The hours, for example 8:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m., are called 0800 (zero eight hundred) and 1900 (nineteen hundred) respectively. Never say "nineteen hundred hours." Hours and minutes go like this: 10:45 a.m. is 1045 (ten forty-five), 9:30 p.m. is 2130 (twenty-one thirty).
