Very little really. The military doesn't police its retirees. Though they are technically subject to recall and the UCMJ, we only really ever recall them for very serious offenses like murder, child molestation and sexual assault, or for an offense that directly touches on national security.
You can certainly contact the federal employer, who can then contact the military to see if any commander is going to care enough to go through the process to bring the person out of retirement, but I have never actually seen it done (and I've been involved with military law since 1993).
