The US got into World War One because German submarines sunk the passenger boat Lusitania and among the dead was 128 Americans. Also the Germans had sent a telegram to Mexico stating that Germans would finanace the mexican army to retake the territories of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona but this was intercepted by Britian and given to USA . The Germans did this so that if the Americans would join the war they would have fight mexico and Germany would not have to face xtra allied troops.
The US joined the war because of many reasons the main reason i think they joined was because the GGerman sub destroyed American merchant ships that were supplying England

What was the importance of World War I on the US and the world?

US and world were imported greatly by world war 1. World war 1 involved the world, so you could see the import it had on world just by the name of the war (which is world war 1 in case you didn't know). Further analysis would lead one to discover that US is in world and thus also a part of world war 1. Hopefully this has helped you understand the import of world war 1.

How did the idea of freedom motivate the US to get involved in both World War 1 and World War 2?

I don't think the idea of freedom had much to do with the US entry into World War I or World War II. The US declared war on Germany in 1917 after the sinking of the Lusitania, where a number of US citizens died. The US entered World War II after the Japanese attack on the military bases at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the German and Italian governments declared war on the US the next day.
