Noah Furbush conducts close-order drill

Noah Furbush, 24, a Marine Corps Officer Candidate, conducts close-order drill at Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia, November 5, 2019. Close order drill instills discipline by increasing precision, response to orders and confidence in the officer candidates. The mission of Officer Candidates School is to educate and train officer candidates in Marine Corps knowledge and skills within a controlled and challenging environment in order to evaluate and screen individuals for the leadership, moral and physical qualities required for commissioning as a Marine Officer.

Furbush, a former linebacker at the University of Michigan, is training to become a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps. Furbush was a four-year Academic All-Big Ten honoree and the recipient of the 2018 Dr. Arthur D. Robinson Scholarship Award, given to the top UM football student athlete. He graduated in 2018 with a degree in aerospace engineering and then graduated with a master’s degree in space engineering in 2019. Furbush is scheduled to graduate from the 10-week officer candidate course November 16 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia where he will subsequently commission as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.
