Only if you don't refuse the first offer of a UAS location. When you do this they'll cram you into Laredo or McAllen that's already overstaffed, but because that's what HQ wants that's what they get. Forget about going North, and even Southeast locations such as Houston and points East are difficult to get after you've done your time in the Southwest.

All in all, with the special salary rate + location bonus it's not a bad way to make a living. You'll just be stuck someplace along the Southern border between Laredo and McAllen. Hope you like eating at Whataburger.
