The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) will host our 19th annual Clearing the Path Gala on October 26th in Washington, DC at the elegant Fairmont Hotel.  We will honor leaders whose extraordinary efforts have improved lives in war-torn countries and celebrate the progress that has been made in making the world a better and safer place.  Please mark your calendars today and join us for us for what promises to be a marvelous evening!
