What two events convinced President Truman to help France in Vietnam?

Im not sure if I know two reasons for the U.S aid of France in Vietnam, but here's one for you: During WWII, when Japan invaded Vietnam, the American troops helped the Viet Minh fight them off, simply because they were already at war with the Japanese.
