"They all look out for each other."

An Army dad serving in Afghanistan couldn't make his daughters Kindergarten graduation, so a special group of surprise visitors went to surprise her.

Members of the Mesa Police Department in Arizona surprised Sophia Prinkey on her May 13 graduation.

Her father, Shawn, is a motorcycle officer and 14-year-veteran of the department who simultaneously serves in the Army.

"The graduation ceremony event was put together by a fellow Mesa Police Department officer and friend of his, whose wife is also a teacher at the same school," Mesa Police Det. Esteban Flores told ABC News. "They worked together with the school and with Prinkey's motor squad to make it happen."

"There’s a lot of our officers in the military," Flores added. "And they all look out for each other."
