After the American player take control over the victory objective marker (= the hostage) he must take this marker along with a squad or any own verhicle, until all his remaining units (and the marker) reach map 11B. If the squad or thevehicle transporting the victory objective marker is destroyed or unable to move, the victory objective marker remain on the current hex until another unit pick him up. To pick up this marker, the unit must end his movement in this hex and is instantly fatigued.

Also a German unit can pick up the marker and bring him back to the original hex (same movement rules like mentioned above).
