Writer Maureen Dowd, presumably while being driven to the office in her chauffeured limousine, recently dictated to her onboard secretary that parents whose children have been killed in battle have an “absolute moral authority” regarding anything they say or demand about the war being waged. Despite their childrens’ having repeatedly volunteered for combat duty.

I get tired of hearing about 'kids in combat.' You'd think they are sending 10 year olds over to fight or something.

In America, when a boy turns eighteen he becomes a man and it becomes the time in his life when he needs to make decisions as a man. And we should treat those decisions as such. No one (at least with half of a brain) goes into the military thinking that they'd never get sent off to war. Cindy Sheehan's son was a man, and a fine one at that, who made the adult decision to join the military. Quit talking about him like he was a child. He was not. He's far more an adult than his mother is.
