Yes, a TERA could be stopped. In fact, legally speaking, even if one was already out on the retirement, that person would still be subject to the UMCJ can could be called back to active duty for court martial or other administrative processing based on on the UCMJ.
Now, there is a difference between "can" and "will." I can only tell you what commanders can do, not what they will do.

That being said, they absolutely can suspend it before it starts...if they move quickly enough.
