We report on the detection of pulsations from the Be/X-ray binary pulsar GRO J1008-57 in the GBM data from August 17.0-20.0, with a barycentric frequency of 10.67027(9) mHz and a mean 12-50 keV pulsed flux of 15.8 +/-0.8 mCrab r.m.s. This is the first GBM detection since the outburst which began in December 2011 (ATel #3805).
