BARBEE, Peter, Captain USMC.   A Marine Corps officer. In 1985, Barbee was a Captain in the Marine Corps in Tustin, CA serving as a helicopter aircraft commander. Barbee was selected for a degree completion program, so he left the Marines for two years to obtain a BA at the University of California at Irvine.  During this time, Col Sabow became aware of drugs on the base at El Toro. He and his staff decided to use undercover methods to find out how the drugs were getting there. Somebody recommended Barbee, who, had a rapport with the troops. In the latter part of 1987, Col. Sabow contacted Barbee and discussed his concern about drug trafficking within the El Toro and Tustin bases.  Source: “The Strange Death of Colonel Sabow” by Gary Null, PhD.
