    Yeah.... I'm glad I didn't end up at either of those. One of my roomates in tech school got orders to Charleston and I am originally from Summerville. I offered him 3k for a swap and he wouldn't take it. He was originally from PA so he would have been close to home at Dover. He was like... I don't want to be stationed up there... I want to live near the beach. I probably would have stayed in if he would have swapped.
