Does Harry Potter speak out for military kids?

I'm not so sure it would be called speaking out for them, but there are definitely themes military children with parents away can relate to. There was a war between two opposing forces and the children in the book did voice concerns for their parents, siblings, friends, and other loved ones. Harry's parents and godfather were killed, Neville's parents were 'mentally broken', two of Ron's brothers were disfigured, his father was severely injured but went back to fighting as soon as he was healed, another brother was killed and his mother turned out a hero. There were other kids pulled out of class with bad news, and others that kept worrying they would be the ones to get the news next only to have their family turn out fine.
