How can I stand out in an interview among tens of other equally-qualified candidates?

I work for the largest organization in my country: the army. I am a commissioned officer applying for a new post. The way it works is, there are, say, 40 new openings in my field. So a pool is created of 40 officers fit for promotion, and after a series of interviews each of us is placed in the position most suitable for him or her, while taking into some consideration each individual officer's preferences.
I am going to, over the next few weeks, interview for a few positions I am very eager to fill. Supposing all candidates are equally qualified and the decision is based solely on the interview, what would you do in an interview to make yourself stand out among 40 people?
