In a article:

(( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._military_vessels_named_after_women ))
"The sidewheel steamer Harriet Lane was launched in 1857. She was the first armed ship in service with the U.S. Navy to be named for a woman."

Could "in service with" be wrong, because I cannot find the right definition of "with" from my dictionary (( learnersdictionary.com/search/with )) that would fit the example. Should it be changed to "in service at" instead?
