The hardest part for me is not really knowing what time it is. I'm used to good old fashion AM and PM, but the military runs on a 24 hour clock. It's fine up until noon (12 hundred hours.) At 1pm pandemonium breaks out. It's not 1pm it's 13 hundred hours. 2pm is 12 hundred hours and so on. I spend my time adding 12, carrying the one and dividing by eastern standard time.
