I always thought that the Third Goal meant that RPCVs should be bringing back to America what they learned about the people in the countries in which they served. I thought that the focus should be on the host country and its citizens.

Am I wrong? I didn't see the Third Goal as focusing on the RPCV and his/her contribution using skills learned during service.
