They will pay for you to get from Cape May to your duty station! "Home" for Colin was Ft Worth, Texas at the time of graduation. The CG would not have paid for him to go back to Ft Worth from Cape May and then on to Boston. You don't go to Boston via Texas when you are leaving from New Jersey. Now, if he had been stationed in San Diego, sure, Texas could have been considered a stop along the way and that would have been paid for. We have a recruit on here right now that is going to be stationed in Cape May. If he wants to go to NYC to see a Broadway show it will cost him to get there, the CG will not pay for any of it. So they won't necessarily pay for you to get home... it's tricky. They'll explain in painful detail for you!
