Hundreds of people attended the funeral Thursday for first Lieutenant Brian Slavenas of Genoa.

He was remembered as a wonderful man and a good friend. Rosemarie Slavenas blamed Bush and says her son died because the U.S. lacks what she calls a civilized foreign policy.

Her 30-year-old son was one of 15 soldiers killed when their Chinook helicopter was shot down west of Baghdad earlier this month.
