Military Time

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"

The tower responded, "Who is calling?”

The aircraft replied, ”What difference does it make?"

The tower replied,  "It makes a lot of difference.
  • If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o’clock.
  • If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
  • If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
  • If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
  • If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it’s Thursday afternoon."

    1. Only the military can be this messed up. Well, government too. Not much difference. :)

  8. Very funny, except I'm not sure if it is making fun of the Marines or somehow showing showing them extra respect (which they deserve.)

    I guess I go by big hand little hand.

    1. I respect every branch of the military. I just thought this was cute. All the different perception of what time it is. :)

    2. I know you do, the comment was directed at my ignorance as I didn't get the last one. Like I said, I go by the hand size.

    1. The little secret to military time is add two to whatever time it is. Say it's 1:00pm, at two and now it's 1300 hours. Easy. :)
