That is a very good question. For several years before the war, most Americans wanted to stay out of any conflicts in Europe. This opinion was referred to as "Isolationists".

When the Japanese attacked the US Navy base at Pearl Harbor, then most Americans wanted revenge. This is similar to how many Americans felt after 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center. Many men joined the Army to go fight.

However, many of these men went to fight in Europe and not Japan. For the most part, most of them felt like they were fighting to bring Freedom and Democracy to the countries that had been occupied by the ruthless leaders of Japan and Germany.
