Could Hackett be charged?

There is a possibility that Marine reservist Maj. Paul Hackett may face charges if he returns to duty with his marine unit. Although off "active status" while making his run, he may still be technically chargeable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice - but only technically.

888. ART. 88. CONTEMPT TOWARD OFFICIALS

Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

I wonder..

One thing is for sure, If he returns to active status with his reserve marine unit next year he'd better watch his trap.
