Its easy. 24 hours in a day.

00:00 is midnight (the beginning of the day)
12:00 is noon (middle of the day)

So, 08:00 is 8AM while 20:00 is 8PM

12:00 + 08:00 = 20:00.

Military time is so easy. 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. are the same as the time.

Midnight 0:00

1 a.m. 1:00

2 a.m. 2:00

3 a.m. 3:00

4 a.m. 4:00

5 a.m. 5:00

6 a.m. 6:00

7 a.m. 7:00

8 a.m. 8:00

9 a.m. 9:00

10 a.m. 10:00

11 a.m. 11:00

noon 12:00

1:00 p.m. 13:00

2:00 p.m. 14:00

3:00 p.m. 15:00

4:00 p.m. 16:00

5:00 p.m. 17:00

6:00 p.m. 18:00

7:00 p.m. 19:00

8:00 p.m. 20:00

9:00 p.m. 21:00

10:00 p.m. 22:00

11:00 p.m. 23:00

after 12 pm, you just add the time to 12..

so, if it's 8:30 pm in our time, to get military time you just do:

12 + 8:30= 20:30

marriedtothearmy.com has a list of ALL of the terms.. There are a crapload of them, and some of them are just unnecessary.
Which one's are unnecessary?
PLDC or WLC
BNCOC
ANCOC
WOCS
OCS
ROTC
SINCGARS
CIK
ETS
PAC
S1
S2
S3
S4
LES
TM
FM
FIST
IED
EOD
UCMJ
I'm confused, these are just a few that a PV1 or a DEP would probably not be familiar with, but most are very important to him.
Others can or will effect him in his career, and others can save his life. I guess it's a good thing I don't think BUCS, HE, WP, ICM, FRAG, MILS, PD, VT, SQ, QUAD, DEF, GDU, TOT or FOE are unnecessary. I wouldn't know what, where, when, how or effect of an artillery round with out these. Those are just the very basics.
Ignorance is combatable.

The Navy had some real doozies like COMSUBSOWESPAC. That meant "Commander of Submarinesin the South West Pacific".

USAREUR- that's hard to say than "US Army Europe"
FORSCOM- Are you really so lazy that you can't say "forces command" ? That's easier to say than this acronym.
