Woman Finds Stiff Replacement for Boyfriend in Iraq | NBC Miami Staff Sgt. Patrick Thomas' girlfriend is cheating on him, well, with him. A cardboard version of the war vet stationed in Iraq, that is. Anne Schollard, who lives in Jacksonville, carries her new cardboard man everywhere she goes - the beach, movies or on a plane. As you can expect, she gets all kinds of crazy looks from people who think she has truly lost it. Schollard doesn't think she has gone loco, but jokingly sees the cardboard beau as an upgrade.
