Battalions are regionally aligned, so a BN for SOUTHCOM, CENTCOM, AFRICOM, etc. The "tactical" BN is global but focuses on a different mission set than the others. Generally speaking, yes, the BNs stay regionally aligned with their AOR. Exceptions include past rotations to Iraq or/and Afghanistan. A friend of mine is a SORB recruiter. I PM'd you his email address. He can answer all your questions.
