Inside the bus, in his summer Class-A uniform with its brass glitter and infantry-blue shoulder cordon, Jamie Sabin was going home. Fort Benning would be a fading dream; Preston, Virginia, a place unknown, his future. He was in between, fumbling with puzzle pieces, making up stories about the real Jamie Sabin. Each of these he set adrift like a paper boat on a shifting sea of daydreams. He did that encased in the drone and shudder of diesel pistons and hissing tires. Jamie Sabin was going home to a place unknown
In the paragraph, Jamie is going to a new place.
He is making up stories about himself in the sentence "He was in between, fumbling with puzzle pieces, making up stories about the real Jamie Sabin".
Right after that sentence is "Each of these he set adrift like a paper boat on a shifting sea of daydreams".
What is "each of these"? Is it his stories? Most likely.
He "sets his stories adrift" like a paper boat on a "sea of daydreams".
So, most likely, that is a simile for stories Jamie makes up about himself.
