Tonight’s NBC News Commander-in-Chief Forum marks the first joint candidate event of the general election.

Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will take questions on national security, military affairs and veterans issues from moderator Matt Lauer and a live audience comprised of service members and veterans. The candidates will appear back to back with a brief commercial break in between.

The live one-hour event, co-hosted by NBC News and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, takes place at New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
