A veterans group will host presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in September for a forum to discuss national security, military affairs and veterans issues.
The founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Paul Rieckhoff, says veterans and active duty military members "are ready to hear from the candidates and hold them accountable."
The candidates will appear back to back during the one-hour event, which will be broadcast in primetime on NBC and MSNBC on Wednesday, Sept. 7 in New York.
"On the cusp of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, New York is a fitting stage to give voice to American veterans and service members that are all too often shut out of our political debate," said Rieckhoff.
Details of the forum's format and air time have not been released.
