NOT EXACTLY DAM-BUILDING 101:

UK troops 'destroy' Taleban camp (BBC, 1/07/07)

British troops have destroyed a Taleban training camp in southern Afghanistan, killing dozens of insurgents, according to the military.

About 110 Royal Marines carried out the operation in northern Helmand, which it is hoped will pave the way for repairs on a hydroelectric dam in the province.

The article commits the error of referring to a Marine as a "soldier."
