I agree with this. The best example for my own life is as follows.
My first duty station was Okinawa. I ended up hating my time over there. But because I was on island for so long, I chose to take leave back to the States at a certain time. I met my wife while I was on leave at that time.
I am convinced that, had I been stationed in the States instead of Okinawa, going back home on leave wouldn't have been as big a deal. So I likely wouldn't have met my wife.
And yes, Okinawa was essentially my choice.
