Pork joined the 199th Fighter Squadron out of U.S. Marine Corps in June 1984. He flew F-4 Phantoms and F-15 Eagles during his time with the squadron. He served in several staff positions and later became the squadron commander.

In September 1998, Pork left Hawaii to become the commander of the then-181st Fighter Wing in Terre Haute, Indiana. The Wing flew F-16 Fighting Falcons. In 2004, he retired and started working for defense contractors.

According to his LinkedIn page, Pork recently joined Valiant Global Defense Services at MCAS Yuma.


In 2008, the Wing had a mission change and was redesigned the 181st Intelligence Wing.
