The Birth of A Needs Based Foundation

Hi, my name, is Laughlin O’Connor and I am the producer/director of AFOM “The Birth for A Needs Based Foundation” Film.

I decided to make a film about AFOM because I believe their stories needed to be told and filmed for people to see.

I went into this film not knowing what type of stories I would hear and whether people would want to share then with me. I am very humbled by the response of those that participated in the film as they shared their feelings and stories with a young stranger.

Initially, I didn’t really know a lot about AFOM, or PTSD, but this film has shown me the importance of an organisation like AFOM. Gail and her supporters of AFOM are a remarkable group of people who do incredible work in ensuring that our veterans “young and old”, and their families, get the support and assistance they need.

I would like to thank AFOM and it Directors for giving me this opportunity.
