Per AFI 24-501 page 26, "A home of selection shipment at Government expense is authorized to any place within the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii)..." for "Retirement, Placement on TDRL, Discharge with Severance or Separation Pay, Involuntary Release from Active Duty with Readjustment or Separation Pay."
It's not really clear on page 23 "Separation From the Service or Relief from Active Duty Except for Discharge with Severance or Separation Pay..." where you can move to. But it says to use Attachment 13, which authorizes them to move your stuff back to your HOR or place entered active duty.
Bingo. For those separating, it's the bolded. Source: just separated. They read me this and told me 1) home of record, or 2) place entered active duty (your MEPS station).
If you wanted to go somewhere further, did they talk to you about paying the difference?
I'm almost positive they said they'll pay UP TO the amount it would cost. Admittedly, I was moving closer than either of the above, so I was less concerned. Still, pretty sure they'll pay the amount of the longest mileage you're "owed" if you move further. That would suck if you moved to a town 20 miles further away from where your HOR is and they were like, "Nope, not a dime!"
