is "vir sine patria" correct in grammar? meaning "man without a homeland/fatherland"? just wanted to make sure it was the proper phrase and properly written. thanks.

Yes, that is correct.  :)

You may see it written with the macron over the a, to distinguish the ablative from the nominative, but the Romans didn't actually use macrons, so it isn't incorrect to leave it off.
