Bug#877900: general: en-us locale defaults to 24-hour "military" time on stock install




Package: general
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

When Debian 9 is installed with the en-us locale selected, the clock defaults
to 24 hour time in the resulting install. This is odd because the normal means
of representing the time in the area covered by en-us is to separate the day
into two 12-hour segments. (localization issue)
