Damage control for a possible candidate for president 2024? Not out of the realm of possibility. Explaining away botched care for veterans is not the kind of baggage you want to bring to the barbecues of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Depositions and "other tools of discovery, will, without a doubt, obtain information that ... will lead to giving my clients and the public answers to what exactly happened," da Costa said.

At Tuesday's event at Washington Crossing State Park, Murphy reflected on the importance of understanding history. It could have served as an ironic mission statement for the review that he authorized the day before.

"Over the past several decades, we have come to recognize that bulldozing our past is really no way to move into our collective future," he said at the park. "If we can't recognize where we came from, we really won't be able to know where we are going."
