The United States military uses the DD MM YYYY format for standard military correspondence. The common month-day-year format is used for correspondence with civilians.
What time format does the military uses?
Military time is based on a 24-hour clock, which is why the numbers on the clock go from 00 to 23. The United States, however, uses the 12-hour clock, which is why the numbers do not go past 12, and the “a.m.” and “p.m.” must be used.
How do Marines write dates?
The date is typed in what is called standard letter format. Follow a day-month-year order without punctuation. Type the day, abbreviated month (first letter capitalized only) and the abbreviated year. The from block, which is required on every standard letter, is typed on the second line below the date line.
