There seems to be some confusion with the way the manual was written. Therefore I will state the way to earn this and there is no exceptions to it.
To get the award the following has to be completed:
A doctorate in Intelligence Operations
A doctorate in Special Operations
At least a masters in Military Studies
You cannot substitute a double doctorate for any of these. You have to have a single studies in each of the following to earn the award. Complete a doctorate in the single study of each of the above.
