NEW LENOX, Ill. — The YORK® brand of Johnson Controls Inc. partnered with New Lenox, Illinois-based RCM Heating & Cooling to award a new HVAC system to celebrated Vietnam veteran, U.S. Army Spc. Abraham Gomez.

Gomez was honored during a military and first responder tribute at the 34th annual “Proud American Days,” a community festival held in New Lenox, Illinois.

"We are honored to contribute our services to the home of Army Spc. Abraham Gomez," said Bill Ward, owner of RCM Heating & Cooling. "It’s a small token of the enormous amount of thanks he deserves for proudly serving his country.”

RCM Heating & Cooling will install a YORK Affinity™ Series heating and air conditioning system.
