"Then I'm going with you," Gunny announced.
"You can't," I said. "If something happens to us, you're the only one who knows what's going on."

Is there any difference between go on(ahead), push on(ahead), and press on(ahead) in the last sentence? I welcome other possible model expressions there as well. Thanks in advance!

There's no difference between your suggestions. You can also use "carry on" or "continue".
