He continued his academic pursuits at Harvard University, and after several years of service as an army officer, he earned a Master of Arts in public administration in 1966 and a Master of Arts in political economy and government in 1967. Dr. Ingram began as the deputy director of the policy and plans division for the U.S. mission to NATO in 1982, and in 1985, he rose to the rank of colonel. In 1987, he leveraged his experience as the academy director of the NATO course at the National Defense University, and from 1989 to 1993, he worked as a military attaché for the Defense Intelligence Agency in Copenhagen and Vilnius. In 1993, Dr. Ingram retired from military service, continued his studies at Harvard and earned a PhD in 1995.
