    Noah Furbush, 24, a Marine Corps Officer Candidate, participates in physical training at Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in Quantico, Virginia, November 11, 2019.The Montford Point Challenge is ran to remember the heroic actions and sacrifices that were made by African American Marines who, from 1942 to 1949, were segregated from white recruits and received basic training at Montford Point, a facility at Camp Lejeune, N. C. 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.
