Motivation behind the South Vietnamese soldiers?

Over a million South Vietnamese soldiers died in the war, for what? Why would a Vietnamese side with the US/NATO troops? Something I was never taught in school- maybe they were against the Viet Cong because they were nationalists? Any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated!

They were fighting for what they saw as the legitimate government of their country. Or they were conscripted. The Americans were initially only involved as "advisors".

One might just as well ask why a North Vietnamese person would side with the Russians, who had a similar role in the north as the Americans did in the south.
