The Last Bugle is the first web series based on the WW2 Japanese American 442nd Regimental Combat Team. After a long hiatus the project is finally in production.  The web series was inspired by the 1960's television series Combat and Steven Spielberg's film Saving Private Ryan.  The web series will follow a fictional platoon of Japanese American soldiers through the Italian campaign 1944-1945.




The goal is to grow a larger fan base, raise funds, and develop the project into a successful web series. With a large fan base and more donations  more ambitious episodes can be developed. More costumes, props, and vehicles can be obtained for future projects. Larger battles can be staged like those in the Lost Battalion Rescue in France 1944.
