how to prevent a milestone from being completed manually

 I'd like to be able to prevent a milestone from being manually completed and only have it change to a "completed" state based on having all of the tasks within the milestone be complete.

Is there a validation rule that I could create for just the milestones that could accomplish this?

Yes, you could use a validation rule to prevent this (Would also work in the same way for Project completion.

In the Evaluation Criteria, select Formula Options to open the dialogue box.  In the Functions list you will find 'IsManuallySet', use this to check if the Milestone State is manually set.  You might also want to have a similar rule that checks the %Complete to ensure that method is also prevented from 'completing' the Milestone.
