Tell him exactly that! That you wanted him in the wedding all along, but thought he would be deployed. That you are happy he will be able to be there, and would he like to be a member of the wedding party.

It isn’t an afterthought in this circumstance.

I think if you want him standting with you, you should ask him. Since he was supposed to be deployed, and is now going to be around, I would guess that he would understand the situation and also be honored that you want him involved. 

My Fiance added one of his friends later in the game, and they were honored to be asked, and did not take offense that it was later than the other groomsmen.

foshshly:  Nope.  Give him those reasons and ask him.  Your reasons are absolutely valid and since you didn’t think he would be there you didn’t ask him.  I say go for it.
