intending to use Tor for?

I know the classic story of US intelligence agents wanting to phone home
from Beijing hotels without Chinese intelligence knowing they were phoning
home as a partial motivation for open-sourcing Tor.

But what was the Navy/military originally hoping to use Tor-related
protocols for? It's unclear to me what their historical motivations were.
