i get confused with american set-up too and i am america. Too long in mil i guess. Example today is 09SEP2016. Which is the equivalent to European standard and also the reason I use 24hr clock, not 12.
The day-month-year order has been increasing in usage since the early 1980s. The month is usually written as an abbreviated name, as in "19-Jul-1922". Many genealogical databases and the Modern Language Association citation style use this format. When filling in the Form I-94 cards and new customs declaration cards used for people entering the U.S., passengers are requested to write pertinent dates in the numeric "dd mm yy" format (e.g. "19 07 22"). Visas and passports issued by the U.S. State Department also use this format. In the food industry, many companies in the US are starting to print expiration dates in the "dd mmm yyyy" order (e.g. "25 DEC 2006").
