Brendan's Story

Six-year old Brendan lost his father, Jeffrery Henthorn, when Henthorn was serving on his second tour of duty in Iraq.  Henthorn and Brendan's mother Sandra had never married, and that created a legal void for military survivor benefits.  Pro bono attorney Craig Campbell of Northwest Arkansas took Brendan's case, and within just a few months was able to win a guardianship order that the military required in order for Brendan to receive survivor benefits.  The boy was awarded $50,000, which Campbell put in a trust, and Brendan now receives a monthly survivor benefit of $1,100 in support.  To see Brendan's story, watch below or click here.
