Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will take the stage back-to-back to answer questions on national security and the military during a “Commander-in-Chief forum” Wednesday night.

During the one-hour forum, sponsored by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and presented by NBC News, Clinton and Trump will address an audience of veterans and troops.

The forum at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum marks the first time both candidates will speak at the same event ahead of the first official presidential debate on Sept. 26.

The event, hosted by Today’s Matt Laueer, begins at 8 p.m. EDT in New York City. Watch the forum live here.
