The military goal of the US in the Pacific during World War 2 was Japanese surrender.
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.

There were numerous US military bases in the Philippines, Corregidor being one of the most famous.
About 350,000 US women served in the US military.
