Military time conversion can pose a challenge. Especially the times of day after noon. That’s when conversion isn’t as simple as dropping a zero such as 0900 to 9:00AM.
So what is 1800 military time or “eighteen hundred hours?” To sort this out take the military time of 1800 and simply subtract 1200. Then add a colon between the hours and minutes, and attach a PM to the end. You know its PM vs AM by if the military time is greater than 1200. 1200 or greater is always PM except for 2400 which is AM (12:00AM).
