For that to happen you would need to fly from Japan or the PI all the way to Charleston, SC. There is no such flight. Your POE will be the first place you enter the US and go thru CBP where you show your passport, your visa, hand over your brown envelope, and your Customs Declaration form. They will stamp your visa, take your brown envelope, mark the Customs Declaration form, and then either welecome you to the US or send you to secondary inspection depending on a lot of factors. You then pick up your luggage. Go thru Customs and declare anything you brought with you and enter the airport terminal. From there you can go anywhere you want. You could even hop on an airplane and go to Kuwait--assuming you have all the necessary travel documents.
