DETROIT & EASTPOINTE, MI – Setting examples of how to be an honorable, loving father has earned Army Major Matthew Wernert the distinction of being Better Made Snack Foods Father Of The Year for 2018.

“I would like to nominate my son, Army Major Matthew Wernert, as Father of the Year. Matt has been married for eleven years and during that time he has been deployed twice to Afghanistan and once to Iraq. Matt and his wife Leslie have three sons. They adopted their eldest son, Devon, when he was 14 years old, three years ago. Matt is an exemplary father and sets examples of honor and respect to his children. I am proud that he is my son and proud of his bravery in serving our country. Thank you.”
“We had another great selection of letters this year and each of them had merit,” says Cathy Gusmano, of Better Made. “In the end, we really thought that Matthew deserved this honor, and we’re all proud of him and his service to our country.”
