Daylight saving time: Fall back this Sunday

By DLA Public Affairs

Daylight saving time ends this Sunday at 2 a.m. when most Americans rewind their clocks. 

Daylight saving time begins the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November, when clocks are adjusted one hour back to standard time.

The United States adopted daylight saving time when the Uniform Time Act of 1966 standardized time zones and daylight saving practices across the United States.

The act allowed states to pass laws exempting themselves. The only states that don’t observe daylight saving time are Hawaii and most of Arizona. It’s also not observed by these U.S. territories: American Somoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
