Air Foce Retirement Question

I was so distraught an hour ago when I couldn't find this comm in my watch list! My f-list is very helpful, so I found you again :-)

Here's my question:

Cam Mitchell - SG-1. He had a serious combat injury that temporarily left him unable to walk. He was on Medical leave for an extended time - let's say a year for the sake of arguement. He was able to return to duty after treatment. Does the year on medical leave count as "active service" when calculating his 20 years to retirement?

Thank you kindly!
