Justin, you're only 14 years old. You have a couple of years to go before a recruiter will even talk with you. Concentrate on finishing high school first....and graduating with a high school diploma.
You do get a wish list when you're in your MOS school....east coast, west coast or overseas....and depending on what you choose, you'll go were the Marine Corps wants you to go.

Hawaii, being part of the United States is considered West.If you're outside the country you're considered "overseas"
Odd but true, when I was in we only had 48 states, Hawaii and Alaska were considered territories

Actually, I believe MCBH is considered west coast if you're trying for it on a wishlist of some sort. I believe your overseas duty stations are Iwakuni and Okinawa. Although the Marine Corps considers MCBH to be OCONUS when it comes time to PCS.

Hawaii for the Marine Corps isn't like Hawaii for civilians, if you're in the field a lot, well it rains there.
I don't think I ever want to go back in a tourist capacity..

Hawaii is about half way from the Far East and half way from the West Coast. You figure it out.
