This would be very convenient for me, but when it comes time to document
it a more proper name is 24-hour notation.  It's used by much more than
the US military.  It's standard for railway schedules in most of the
world, medical records in most of the world, aviation worldwide, and
other places.

I work mostly in 24-hr notation and putting that colon in the right
place is mistake prone.
