EL PASO, TEXAS - As Mary Anne Sullivan-Scott left Texas to return to West Virginia last week, a U.S. Army colonel placed a gold coin in her hand. "Never quit" was inscribed on the coin. It was one of her son's favorite quotes. The words, while simple, summed up the positive attitude of her son, Joshua L. "Doc" Kidwell, who died last week, she said. Kidwell, 21, an Army specialist, died June 24 at the Thomason Trauma Center in El Paso. Kidwell sustained head injuries June 23 when he jumped out of a moving truck during an argument with his wife, El Paso police and military officials said in a story that was published June 27 in The El Paso Times.
