RHEL 5, Changing AM to PM

Hi all. sorry if this sounds stupid but i searched on google before pasting here. I am using gnome 2.16.0. When i set the time (lower right corner) it sets my time automatically to AM. I dont see any option to change it to PM. Can someone help me where i should tune it ?

I was able to do it using the following command

date +%T%p -s "4:10:30PM"

But is there anyway to do it from Gnome ?

GNONE will display military time. So you can set "4:10:30PM" as 16 hr 10 min 30 sec in the UI.

To set data and time in GNOME see this link.
