Military uses a 24-hour clock...do the math...noon is 12:00, 1 pm is 13:00.....

18 = 1800 hours

32 = minutes

1832 = 1832 hours

The 'military' clock starts at 0 (zero) hours, midnight

Each one hour interval after that =100, for example, 2 AM is 0200 hours (oh-two-hundred hours)

Thus 1800 hours equals 6:00 PM - midnight plus eighteen hours

The 32 stands for minutes

18:32 = 6:32 PM or twenty-eight minutes before 7:00 PM.

18:32 in normal time would be 6:32 PM. 18:32:10 would mean 6:32:10 PM (6:32 and 10 seconds). Military time really means they keep adding on the hours of the clock until 24 o'clock or midnight. Normal time just goes by looking at the normal circular 12-hour clocks where they have 12 hours "listed" so when it's past noon, you read it by what it says, literally, you don't add the hours it is and 12 together.
You could say military time makes it more specific by saying precisely what time of day it is mostly from the hour number then the minute number. But others could also say that normal time works also as you can add AM or PM to the end to make it more specific.
My theory on why military time is named "military" time is MAYBE because soldiers need the complete information on time in a concise way. Whether or not this is true, it still helps by not needing to say AM or PM afterwards. Hope this helps!

6:32 pm + 10 sec.

If the hour number is greater than 12, subtract 12 (this also means that the time is pm).

Just think of a 24 hour clock.

If it doesn't make sense, subtract 12 and call it PM.
