If you mean can a military retiree be reactivated and court martialed, no not at present.

An appeals court in 2019 overturned such a case based on 5th Amendment rights. It hasn't been challenged, so it's still in effect.

On the other according to US Code 8312 if a retired commissioned officer is convicted in a civil court of certain offenses (sedition is one), s/he loses all pay and most likely be dismissed. In other words you can't play; we don't pay. Dismissal is the equivalent of a dishonorable discharge. The prep loses every benefit; it's like they never rolled off the bus.
