Why Military Time?

Military time is a way of expressing time, typically used by the military and other organizations that operate on a 24-hour clock. It is represented by four digits, with the first two representing hours and the last two representing minutes. For example, 4:30 PM would be written as 1630 hours after converting to military time. This system is widely used in the military, as it allows for greater precision when conveying times for operations or exercises. It can also be useful for international travel since it eliminates confusion about whether a given time is AM or PM. Additionally, using military time helps to avoid any potential misunderstandings that could arise from using conventional 12-hour clocks.
