    Another organization that uses the 24 hour system is the military, and ...erm..I'm not even sure. But I think this may help.

    Also, note 12:00 midnight would be 0:00 on the 24 hour system.

    5:30 PM would be 17:30 on the 24 hour system...etc.

    I hope this helps!

    There is an old joke that goes like this . . .


    An announcement was made to a combined military force.

    "For you Soldiers, the exercise begins at 6 A.M.
    For you Sailors, that's four bells.
    For you Marines, that's zero-six-hundred.
    For you Flyboys, the big hand is on the twelve ..."
