|Hashkafa - To shave or not to shave|
|Submitted by Chaim Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
It seems to me that you may shave. Even thought they may accommodate you this time, but it is likely to have repercussions down the road and label you "uncooperative". Since it seems you already mentioned the issue to your commander, you might want to tell him that you are not compromising on you religious principles, you are following them according to the ruling of your Rabbi and chaplain.
