Zulu (GMT, UTC, it is all the same) is actually pretty simple once you learn it. Eastern Daylight Time is 4 hours behind Z...so take the time shown in Zulu, and subtract 4 hours from it. Later in the season, when Daylight Saving Time ends, Eastern time zones will be 5 hours behind Zulu.

Right now:
12Z = 8 am EDT

When DST ends:
12Z = 7 am EST

Looks like AF304 (Mission 12) turned around and returned to base. Will this mean no penetrations until morning?
