Have you thought of asking the military chaplain’s replacement?? Obviously, the one that is leaving will have a replacement and it would stand to reason that if you request for his replacement, the one that is leaving may give his take on what to say which may be more meaningful than a complete stranger

I know this is a silly question, but can you move the orthodox service up a few months? You’re not inviting many people to that one, is that correct?

I know that would put your korean and orthodox dates REALLYCLOSE together, which might be stressful, but possibly worth it.

I was in the Army a long time ago, and I am asian. So I can understand trying to fulfill both sides, although the replacement chaplain may not be orthodox, he might have contacts as to if there is another one near the bases that is orthodox priest. Or better yet, ask the one that is leaving if he can point you to an orthodox priest before he leaves so that you can have your peace of mind? Or check with the secretary of the head of the Korean church to see if he/she have a listing of local orthodox and talk to a few of them to see if you feel comfortable with any of them. (I say to check with the secretary because if the head priest is that busy, by the time he can give you a list might be too late for you, whereas the secretary may be able to help you faster). Just some ideas and sorry you had to be stressed so close to your wedding.
