Lasdon Park and Arboretum is home to four memorials and a museum that honor all Westchester County servicemen and women who have served their country in various branches of military service. They were funded through the efforts of the Vietnam Memorial Committee and the Vietnam Veterans of America, Westchester Chapter 49.

The Merchant Marine Memorial honors all residents who have served their country in this branch of the military.

The Trail of Honor comprises a series of 12 stone cairns that display the busts of combat soldiers from every major American conflict, dating from the American Revolution through Operation Desert Storm.

Also located along the trail is the Korean War Memorial, a tribute to all Westchester residents who served in what was called "The Forgotten War," which lists the names of Westchester servicemen who lost their lives during this conflict.

At the end of the Trail of Honor is the Westchester Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a sculpture that is comprised of three seven-foot bronze statues that depict a soldier carrying a wounded comrade, with a nurse reaching out to assist them. Nearby, a flagpole is set on a base with inscriptions of Westchester County servicemen and eight women nurses killed in Vietnam. A cobblestone walkway encircles this memorial, affording breathtaking views of the Muscoot River.

The Westchester County Veterans Museum features exhibits of photographs, historical documents, artifacts and memorabilia pertaining to the lives of Westchester County residents who served in the United States armed forces in time of war.
