Military time is the convention of timekeeping in which the day is divided into 24 hours. Also known as the 24-hour clock, within this system the day runs from midnight to midnight, from 0 to 23. Today, it is the most widely used time format in the world.
As the day is approximately 24 hours, in the military time clock, the day begins at midnight, 00:00 in military time, and ends at 23:59.
First of all, remember that the military clock runs from 0000 (zero-zero-zero-zero hours) to 2359 (twenty-three hundred fifty-nine hours). To tell the hour, you need to use hundred, instead of thousand. For instance, zero nine hundred is how you read 9 a.m., and twenty-one hundred is how you read 9 p.m. For minutes, just use the numbers. Finally, append hours. For more examples, see the military time chart above.
