About Drive On Podcast
The Drive On Podcast is hosted by Scott DeLuzio, an Army infantry veteran who served in Afghanistan in 2010. After that deployment, several individuals that Scott served with took their own lives.
Scott realized that this problem was widespread amongst the military community, and didn't want to wait around for another fellow veteran to take their own life. That was the spark that caused Drive On Podcast to come to life.
On the podcast, Scott talks to guests who share personal triumphs, life experiences, and emotional hardships while showing the path they used to overcome those experiences.
What Does "Drive On" Mean?
Drive On is a phrase used in the military that refers to keeping going to complete a task or continuing despite hardship.
When we return from deployment, transition out of the military, experience combat, or lose a friend we all have our own hardships that we have to overcome.
