All 7 uniformed services under the United States Armed Forces are in the Dept of Defense. See the word Armed? It is in there for a reason.

President Barack Obama reacted to the Supreme Court ruling in a statement:
I am deeply disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision today. For nearly 50 years, the Voting Rights Act – enacted and repeatedly renewed by wide bipartisan majorities in Congress – has helped secure the right to vote for millions of Americans. Today’s decision invalidating one of its core provisions upsets decades of well-established practices that help make sure voting is fair, especially in places where voting discrimination has been historically prevalent.
As a nation, we’ve made a great deal of progress towards guaranteeing every American the right to vote. But, as the Supreme Court recognized, voting discrimination still exists. And while today’s decision is a setback, it doesn’t represent the end of our efforts to end voting discrimination. I am calling on Congress to pass legislation to ensure every American has equal access to the polls. My Administration will continue to do everything in its power to ensure a fair and equal voting process.
O'bama lies. He corrupted the last election. And yet? poor poor pitiful democrats spewing stupidity. If one democrat was not able to vote in the elections it would be front page news for years. That face would be plastered on coins, towels, signs, and anything else the democrats see fit.

So please show me where it's listed.

No, you can't. The navy is a separate service.

The problem is you're looking at this from a present day perspective. It's not a service that came into being like DHS.
