DALTON, Mass. — Mitch Daehling didn't live in Dalton for very long but he left a deep impression during his brief time at Wahconah Regional High School. 
 
That connection with the town was given permanence on Saturday when the Old Windsor Road bridge over the Housatonic River was named the Spc. Mitchell K. Daehling Memorial Bridge. 
 
The 2006 Wahconah graduate was "a model citizen and soldier, loving husband, loyal son, brother, grandson and friend," said retired Principal Tom Callahan, who was master of ceremonies for the dedication. "Mitch's patriotism brought him to answer his country's call to military duty."
 
A gathering of family, community members, representatives of elected officials, veterans and classmates attended the unveiling of a bronze plaque recalling the sacrifice of the 24-year-old Army infantryman and installed within sight of the high school he attended.
