I used to work at a San Diego training command. We quickly learned that when new instructors reported aboard from Yokosuka, kicking & screaming the entire flight, the first words out of their mouths after "Reporting for duty" were "... and I'd like to go back to Japan next!" Some of those guys were overseas for their entire careers between bootcamp & retirement, and I know a few that still haven't come back.
Similar situation in Hawaii.

If your dream sheet was submitted to the Navy's BUPERS, it'd be proudly displayed in their "Hall of Fame" trophy case and make the front page of Navy Times.
You'll get something overseas, in some climate. I guess the big question is whether it'll be in Hongul or Farsi... or Bantu.
