How would you explain “post” in the context?

 

I’m not even sure he would have realized he was permitted to have his own desires and preferences. That it would have been OK for him to have a favorite place, to walk with satisfaction down the long, straight boulevards of whatever post he may have gone to next, to admire the uniformity of the grass, green and neatly shorn beneath a blue, limitless sky, to bury himself in a sandy shoal in the shallow of some clear cold stream and let the water wash over the pitted skin of his scarred body.

How would you explain “post” in “to walk with satisfaction down the long, straight boulevards of whatever post he may have gone to next”?
Thanks!

    A "post" is an "assignment" to go full one's employment-related duties at a specified location. For example, a military general may currently serve in Iraq, but his next "post" could be, say, somewhere in Afghanistan.
