There are many reasons why the Americans became increasingly involved in Vietnam War. A main one being the French. They had influenced Indo-China since before World War II. Japan, in WWII, tried to get hold of Indo-China so they fought the French for it. At the beginning of the battle, it was the Frech and Vietminh vs Japan. Japan were on their way to victory so France decided they had no chance of winning and decided to think about surrendering. Japan, being communist, were trying to make Indo-China communist and due to the American theory of the Domino theory, they decided to back up France.

Another main reason linking into the answer above was the American attitudes to communism, they would do anything to stop communism spreading. Examples of this are, the Truman Doctrine, Marshall Aid and also the Domino theory was an insentive to stop communism spreading.
