I take it your tenant is in the come on! If he is and he was called up for duty, he has absolutely no choice but to go.
You must make a bonafide good faith effort to find another tenant.
That being said, my personal opinion is that you should consider retaining 1 months security deposit from him for "damages". Being in the military I'm sure he will have a military attorney appointed to represent him on this if he needs it. It will cost you more in lawyers fees to go after him than it will for you to find another tenant, especially if you come to the agreement that you keep 1 months rent. By the way I know nothing about Virginia law, just that going after this is a losing proposition specifically because he is Military; I doubt a judge would be sympathetic to your case.
