The narrator drifts away from the other soldiers after they learn about his medals. Over time, they come to understand that he isn't like them..... he doesn't have their edge..... they were like "hunting hawks", he is not. Thus, they drift apart.

The three with the medals were like hunting-hawks; and I was not a hawk, although I might seem a hawk to those who had never hunted; they, the three, knew better and so we drifted apart.
