WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A Wichita Chiefs superfan is making sure veterans aren’t forgotten on Valentine’s Day.
Chiefs Santa Ma Ho Ho Homes, also known as Don Lobmeyer, delivered roses to the Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center before heading to Kansas City for the Super Bowl parade.
“So, I had the day off. He came here to the VA, delivering roses, helping our cupid. He’s a pretty busy guy on Valentine’s Day. So, I’m giving them out to all the veterans, the staff, everyone here,” Lobmeyer said.
Lobmeyer is working overtime. He enjoyed the game with fans outside the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday. He spent the day with VA patients on Tuesday.
“Very special meaning because I get to see some of the guys I’ve been lined up with here today. Got to see some that you don’t see very often. I can see them that way, so it works out pretty good sometimes,” she said.
Lobmeyer said he likes to see patients smile.
“You know, there are things that happen. They are going through a difficult time and are struggling. And, you know, just to bring a smile and the Chiefsmas spirit to the patients here,” Lobmeyer said. “It’s just continuing to serve after my military service. I’m still able to do good things out there in the community and everywhere, and it has given me a bigger platform to do more.”
