Just about. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) was the previous international time
standard. In 1970, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU)
adopted Coordinated Universal Time as the standard. Needing a Three Letter
Acronym (TLA) for this standard, the ITU tried to figure out what to use.
Here's the story from the Web site of the U. S. National Institute of
Standards and Technology:

standards, and other fun stuff. For your reference, the differences
between UTC and the local time zones in the US are:
Zone Standard Daylight Savings
---- -------- ----------------
Atlantic UTC - 4 UTC - 3
Eastern UTC - 5 UTC - 4
Central UTC - 6 UTC - 5
Mountain UTC - 7 UTC - 6
Pacific UTC - 8 UTC - 7
Alaska UTC - 9 UTC - 8
Hawaii UTC - 10 UTC - 9
You can find a nice tables for converting between UTC and local time at the
U. S. Naval Observatory site at:
And, of course, there ought to be all kinds of material here for scouts
needing information for merit badges...
