English term or phrase: That They May Return
Prisoners of war, hostages, would be rescued or somehow get home

So sorry...
I had the phrase wrong when I asked first...I mistakenly put "that they may survive"...

Mille grazie. Your translation was very accurate and the added wording was a thoughtful touch...I do believe the people I am working with will accept the phrase...with or without "incolumes". Regardless, I am going to accept your answer as most helpful.

btw: I took 2 years of Latin in school...it helps with general language, but I never committed the vocabulary or the grammar to memory. Congratulations. I do remember reading The Iliad and The Odyssey in Latin! lol
