Not everyone comes home during War, what would you do if it was your own brother.

Our episode today is an emotional one and the story about relearning to live with a family member by your side. The movie "Saving Private Ryan" showed us the story of what this was like during WWII. This still shows up in war today just as it did then and Scott is going to share what that process was like for him and how he found purpose in the pain and now leads his own Podcast to help other Veterans Drive On.

Scott DeLuzio is an Army veteran, having served six years with the Army National Guard, including a deployment to Afghanistan in 2010. Scott’s brother, Steven, was also deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. Unfortunately, Steven was killed in action on August 22, 2010. After returning home, Scott struggled with coping with the stresses of combat, the loss of his younger brother, and adjusting back to civilian life. In the years following Scott’s deployment, he noticed other veterans dealing with their struggles in unhealthy ways. Scott started his podcast, Drive On Podcast, to connect with current and prior service members. Through the podcast, Scott hopes to let other veterans know that they are not alone in their struggles. He interviews veterans and civilians to discuss personal triumphs, life experiences, and emotional hardships to give hope and strength to the military community.

Scott lives in Surprise, Arizona, with his wife, Vicki DeLuzio, and their three children.
