Unless you're disabled (god forbid) they can and will reactivate you irregardless of how long you've been out. I had a chiropractor that had enlisted in WWII and was in the airborne (the ones that later became known as Rangers) paratroopers. He served his 4 years, got discharged and when Korea got going got re-oped back into the 101st. Served another 4 years and when Vietnam started got re-oped yet again. Had a family, kids, the whole nine. This was fully 20 odd years after he'd first enlisted. The military is like the Hell's Angels. Just because you're no longer active, you're never out if they want you.
