basically the US got involved cos they feared that the 'Red Threat' (communism) would have had a 'domino affect' on the countries closest. As for historical reasons, after an alleged N. Vietnamese attack on US warships in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964, President Johnson was given congressional approval (Tonkin Gulf Resolution) to take military action.
