How many soldiers (if any?) survived the entirety of the fighting of either the western or eastern front of World War I?

I don't know anything about troop movements of the war, so if someone started out in France and got moved to Gallipoli and then back to France or Russia, that's fine. Getting wounded in 1916 and sitting out the rest of the war, not so much.
Curious because with the atrocious mortality rate, I'm wondering if ANYONE survived from the start (or close to it) of the war all the way to the end in a front line/trench position.
