No apology necessary...it is complicated and I just wanted to reference a more detailed explanation. Please take note of the taxable income reduction that might apply in your case (I provided a link). Many have received refunds by submitting 1040X forms for multiple years, including me.

Re: "Got my rating increase from 80% to 100% in Sept 2011. I received my audit sheet from DFAS in Sept 2012 which showed a balance due of $500 which they forwarded over to the VARO in Nashville. Sent an IRIS request November 2013 and just got a letter saying they received my request......."
As you have found, it is impossible to project when a military retiree will receive their retro under present conditions.
You might have noticed (by viewing VBN) that a retiree recently received his retro only a month or two after his claim was approved and another retiree was still waiting (for the same VARO) to generate his payment after 21 + months (note: he received his payment a month or so later).
I received a retro payment in October 2013 after ~21 months. There was (and is) another retro due to me from the same VARO of around $400--it remains unpaid. It seems both would have been done at the same time. The small retro entitlement is now about 17 months old.
