No, he wouldn't be.
Under the law concerning the continuation of Tricare for former spouses of military retirees, the marriage has to have lasted at least 20 years, overlapping 20 years of military service, for the former spouse to retain the right to Tricare.

I know you didn't ask, but I'll just add, he CAN seek a portion of her military retirement.
State courts have the right to divide that as a shared asset based on the overlap of their marriage while she earned that retirement.
