September 17, 2016

Election history was made as IAVA and NBC News co-hosted the first ever Commander-in-Chief Forum, a national televised event that attracted nearly fifteen million viewers. The forum gave presidential candidates the opportunity to answer questions from veterans focused on national security, military affairs, and other timely veterans’ issues.
