STERLING - Artyom Dutchak may define the characteristics of a United States citizen but he isn't one - yet.
He's lived in America since his early teens. He graduated from an American high school. He's served in the U. S. Marine Corps for three years and been deployed to Iraq twice. Dutchak says he's always felt like a U.S. citizen but just hasn't been one officially.
On Monday that will change. Dutchak, 20, will be naturalized and will officially gain the only thing missing from his citizenship - the documentation.
