    Military time conversion chart is a concise method of expressing time used by the military, hospitals, law enforcement agencies and other emergency entities. This type of time uses a 24 hour time format that makes the use of a.m and p.m unnecessary. For example, midnight will correspond to 0000 while 2 p.m will correspond to 1400 in that order. In addition, many countries including the United States and Canada refer to the 24 hour clock as military time. The reason for the military time conversion is because this type of time is actually different from the conventional or regular time notation. Military time is a method of timekeeping based on the 24 hour clock. It relies on a day that is divided into hours and minutes on a 24-hour cycle from midnight to midnight. Military time is commonly used in the United States, United Kingdom, Philippines, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Columbia, Pakistan, and Malaysia. The 24-hour time system is primarily used by military and emergency services in these countries, unlike the rest of the world. Civilian timekeeping in these countries primarily uses the 12-hour timekeeping system notated with A.M. Most other countries in the world use a variation of military time called 24-hour time for both civilian and military timekeeping. The military time converter chart above is a simple conversion table with standard time on the left column and its corresponding military time on the right. In most cases, it should be presented without the colon separator between minutes and hours. As such, it is not present in the military time chart above.
