"To be brief is almost a condition of being inspired" ~George Santayana
Given this week's puzzle theme, it's only fitting to be brief and to the point. (Did I detect a collective sigh of relief from readers who have been spared the usual claptrap from the puzzlemaker?) Let's proceed to the puzzle!
Welcome to Week 541 of Crossword Nation. We humbly invite you to solve "Military Briefs" as your latest challenge.

Until next time, I remain . . .
Solvers of The New Yorker puzzles: Themeless puzzlers, please check out my latest crossword (a “moderately challenging" diversion, per the editors).
Mini Crossword Aficionados: For a quick solve, please try the Daily Mini Crossword in the L. A. Times. It's free! Simply bookmark and visit daily for a new puzzle.

But first ....
- Please check the Spam folder. Sometimes the Crossword Nation emails are redirected to Spam folders. This can happen after a software or system update. If it's not in the Spam folder, then try Step 2.
- Visit the Subscriber Portal and Re-send the Puzzle To Your Mailbox. You can always send the latest puzzle (or any puzzle from our archive) to yourself. Visit here:
Choose the "Resend Puzzle" link at the bottom right of the page. From there, you can choose which puzzle to send to your mailbox!
