BEAUFORT, S.C. - This just may be the most heartwarming video you see all day!

Ridgeley is two and a half years old, and she is the niece of News 3 Producer Forrest Deal.

She surprised her parents, Kaitlan and Adam, by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in a video. They had no clue she had learned it in preschool!

One of the most special details is that Ridgeley's dad is an F-18 Pilot in the Marine Corps. They are stationed in Beaufort, South Carolina, and he is about to deploy with his squadron in a few weeks.

Ridgeley not only surprised her parents, but a room full of military service members.

As the video shows, her performance was perfect and her proud smile lights up as she finishes! Great job, Ridgeley!
