I just got around to watching this, and the kids bothered me. Were they Cyber Newtypes or something? It was just kinda weird.

I feel this sums it up pretty well:

Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team (機動戦士ガンダム 第08MS小隊, Kidō Senshi Gandamu Dai Zerohachi Emu Esu Shōtai?) is a twelve-episode Gundam OVA series. Released from 1996 to 1999, the series details the adventures of an Earth Federation Space Force ground unit during the One Year War - specifically before the original 1979 Gundam series and into the final weeks of the war. 08th MS Team is the first Gundam series to show the war from the viewpoint of the average soldier. The epilogue episode, called "Last Resort", was released a few months after the series ended, and featured a more surreal plotline than the rest of the series.

The series taking such a long time to be released (Last Resort was released a full three and a half years after the series began) was largely due to the sudden death of director Takeyuki Kanda in July 1996. GONZO's Umanosuke Iida took over production of the series until it ended. The first 11 episodes of 08th MS Team were shown on Cartoon Network in 2001. "Last Resort" was never shown on television because Cartoon Network allegedly did not want to show an episode that revolved around children being drafted into the military. However, all twelve episodes are on the DVD release

You can always think of the children as the same as Allelujah and Soma/Marie in Gundam 00. The ship they were on got caught out and the children were the only survivors out of it.
