12 hours before mid-day, and 12 hours after mid-day.

Latin trumps mil-speak.

As God intended. He also intended for leading zeros to be truncated.

When I spent time in Europe I found that most of them there use the 24 hour preference.

I don't know if this is true, but I have been told that referring to 24 hour time as "military time" is uniquely American.

Presumably because in America it's traditionally only been used by the military... and a few other non-conformists such as myself.

Meh, I'm accustomed to both.
Multiple, previous employers (non military) have used the 24hr system, it's easy to translate into the 12 system.
Was watching an episode of Hogan's Heroes last night and got to see Col Crittendon's method for translating 24 time to 12 hour time. I don't remember exactly, but it went something like this...

2400 hrs... 2 + 4 is 6... 6 goes into 24 4 times... 6 + 4 is 10... hence, 2400 hrs is 10 o'clock.

The software we use at work is done in all 24 hrs.
It's so natural now, really don't notice translating, we just do it,

My trick is take the last digit subtract 2 and drop the first digit. So for 13:00, 3-2 = 1:00. Though after a while you just get used to it. Quebec uses 24-hour time so I have gotten rather used to it after two years.
