A Bastrop bridge was dedicated and renamed Friday in honor of a Navy Seal who died when his helicopter crashed in Afghanistan.
The loop 150 bridge is now named the Stephen "Matthew" Mills Memorial Bridge. Friday would have been Mill's 38th birthday.
Mill's family and friends attended the dedication.
Chief Petty Officer Mills was killed in action on August 6, 2011 when his helicopter was shot down.
Mills was born in Austin in 1975. He was a dedicated father, family man and friend.
He left behind a wife, two sons and a daughter.
Matt was called "Captain America" by his close friends and family.
